Primer (2004)

It is very hard to know what this low budget science fiction film is actually about. It involves two engineers who develop a backyard time travel device in their spare time. Through using the machine their time travelling doubles develop a life of their own (I think!) and something, but it is not clear what, goes wrong. I like elliptical films but I found this one absolutely incomprehensible and drearily tedious. It is also a mystery why it won a prize at the Sundance Festival in 2004 and why so many of the user reviews on the imdb are so positive.
