Shane Carruth’s sophomore effort film is a cross between Memento, Mulholland Drive and a third even more confusing movie than those two.  Its about two people who seem to both have had the same thing happen to them: they were hypnotized by a robber who makes them sign their life savings and possessions over to them.  Thats the only thing I really understood, theres a whole thing with pigs and a sound designer / farmer?  There is no way you will possibly understand whats going on in this movie unless you look it up online afterwards, but its compelling.  I think its about “identity”?  Shane Carruth is kind of a genius though.  Worth Checking Out

I was just about to review this! Yeah, I think you described the experience of watching the movie perfectly. I also watched Primer, which I guess I’ll review now. The only explanations of UC movie I read were pretty vague, did you find one that was pretty descriptive?

Thanks! That makes sense, but at the same time it was just kind of describing the movie in a way that I already kind of understood it. I guess I thought there might be something more to it.

Also yeah, Carruth may be a genius, it’s not clear tough.
