TGB Breakdown Ep 3: Shane Carruth's Primer (Guest: Alan Cerny)
by Tim Buel
April 6, 2012
On this episode of The Golden Briefcase Breakdown, Tim & Jeremy are again joined by Alan Cerny aka "Nordling" from AICN (just on TGB Episode 103) to go over an extremely spoiler-filled discussion on Shane Carruth's sci-fi time travel cult hit Primer, released in 2004. The main purpose of these Breakdown episodes is to to ponder, discuss and challenge the films that we feel often need more talk than just a simple review. We breakdown the film to discuss plot devices, theories and endings in order to better understand the director's vision and hopefully to challenge listeners at home to re-evaluate the way they watch cinema.
Extra episodes of TGB Breakdown will be arriving about every month, and will appear here in addition to all of our regular weekly Golden Briefcase episodes. Beware - every episode of TGB Breakdown will contain MASSIVE SPOILERS for the film in discussion (this one is for Primer). You have been WARNED!
