4. Read Wikipedia article.
5. Read the “Time Travel In Primer” chart in the Wikipedia article. It will kind of start to make sense.
6. Watch movie again with the complicated chart sitting in front of you.
7. Pause movie several times to have a discussion with your significant other about what is happening.
8. Read complicated chart again when movie is over.
