Primer

I’m glad I didn’t see this 2004 ultra-low-budget science fiction film till just now, because it works so well as a parable about Wall St and quants.

Two engineers accidentally build a time machine in a garage, and what’s the first thing they do with it? Day trading. Very soon afterwards (well, technically, even sooner than that) things start to not make much sense at all. Even if you watch the film again the next day like I did.
