Well yeah, it's annoying how some people don't get the difference between being dense in ideas and just being obscure for cred. One film I saw fairly recently was Primer, which you pretty much won't understand on the first viewing but is really, really good.

It is a mind-blow when you get it. Love that movie after the third viewing

I've only seen it once so far, but I definitely plan on seeing it many many times in my life.

you can't even begin to comprehend the first time round. Understanding only comes through large amounts of exposure

Well I think I understood it generally, but there's probably heaps I didn't pick up on.

Watch it a second time, and then wait for your mind to implode

Is this movie a bit like beer and wine, where I have to waste my time consuming it before I enjoy it or is it more along the lines of chocolate, the more you eat it the more it increases in awesome?

No, it is like creme eggs. You eat some and then if you eat too much it is not good.

The second one, Kimra. Although I can see how it would be boring for some people, it's an almost completely cerebral film.

If you understand it entirely the first time, it is not fun to watch again.

Even if you somehow miraculously got every nuance te first time round I bet there would still have been something new to find the second time round. It is like Jane Austen, and realising that every single thing they say is foreshadowing..

Alas! Everyone on the Pequod is still doomed to die no matter how many times you read the book!

If you're still not winning after reading it that many times, maybe you just really suck at reading.
