The Crash (2004) is a highly recommended masterpiece, directed by the writer of Million Dollar Baby, Paul Haggis. Crash is a melodramatic and realistic film, about the differences between people, on the trivial issue of skin color, which is one of the main reasons causing conflicts among mankind. It deals with how cruelly people are obsessed with racism, and the impacts it make on their lives.

The most important emotional aspect of the film is, the people who are hated the most by other race, are the ones who actually rescue the haters from crisis and save their very lives. An accident collides all of their lives and make them realize their mistakes and redeem their sins. Its ensemble cast, mainly comprises of Don Cheadle, Sandra Bullock, and Thandie Newton. The film won three Oscars in 2005, for best picture, writing/original screenplay, and editing.

Primer (2004) is arguably the best time travel, independent film ever made, based on actual science. It is mind bending and complex to comprehend. If you consider Christopher Nolan’s Memento, Interstellar and Prestige difficult to comprehend, Primer is even more challenging.

The director Shane Carruth is a flight simulation engineer turned independent filmmaker. He has probably used his technical expertise in the film as well, as the movie is loaded with technicalvocabularies, it takes separate effort to understand them first. Carruth, kind of introduced DIY ( Do It Yourself) approach. The virtue of being an independent filmmaker is to take on various roles, apart fromspearheading as director. He wrote, directed, produced, composed music, edited, designed the production and sound. The film was entirely made on a budget of 7000 USD.I deliberately don’t want to talk about the plot as its kind of open for interpretation film. On watching it,I got obsessed about the story and started diving deep into the various technical aspects for weekstogether.

I realized that I was not able to stay focused on other priorities as well. Therefore, I stopped watching Primer or at least I’m attempting to forget the film. It’s a warning. If you watch Primer, you would go into it and get lost. Do you want to?
