I agree with your statement but not the score attached to it.
The dramatic nuance of Primer is actually what keeps me coming back after the first viewing over the science.
The Time Travel becomes a facilitator for insane drama because once you understand what is going on it calls into questions every single word out of everyone's mouth and every decision for the run time.

- Upstream Color
- Spring Breakers
- Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo
- Pain & Gain
- Room 237

Carpenter seems to be the only guy making Apocalyptic movies who understands the fundamental truth about them and the word. Shit does not get better at the end of them, it may change it may grow new but that which existed before is wiped out.
Also Sam Neill is great but you didn't need me to tell you that.
