Upstream Color (2013)

116) Upstream Color (2013)

A man and woman are drawn together, entangled in the life cycle of an ageless organism. Identity becomes an illusion as they struggle to assemble the loose fragments of wrecked lives.

9/10 – From the creative mind of Shane Carruth who brought us the excellent Primer, Upstream Colour is another adventure off into hypnotic abstract weirdness. Understandably this film divided opinion, people that don’t like it fall into a category of being “too stupid to understand it” and those that did are accused of being indie-film loving hipsters. It won’t please everyone, but if you wait until the end of the film before making a judgement of “this is shit”, because once the puzzle is pieced together, the film is something oddly incredible.
