Next Film Discussion Forum

Greetings Film Buffs!

The RIFC's Film Discussion Group has selected it's next film to be round-tabled on Monday February 26th at 9:00pm at Trinity Brewhouse in Providence.

The film chosen is Shane Carruth's 2004 indie sci-fi mindbender "Primer", and this week's moderator will be Chris Magdalenski. See below for a brief plot summary and a link to the film's IMDB page.

At night and on weekends, four men in a suburban garage have built a cottage
industry of error-checking devices. But, they know that there is something
more. There is some idea, some mechanism, some accidental side effect that
is standing between them and a pure leap of innovation. And so, through
trial and error they are building the device that is missing most. However,
two of these men find the device and immediately realize that it is too
valuable to market. The limit of their trust in each other is strained when
they are faced with the question, If you always want what you can't have,
what do you want when you can have anything?

P.S. Just a heads-up - In two weeks, (Monday, March 5th) we are planning to
discuss "The Departed" Martin Scorsese's latest crime saga masterpiece. The
moderator will be Sam Marshall.
