Upstream Color is much anticipated follow up to 2004s Primer, a brilliant experimental sciece fiction film from Shane Carruth. Like Primer it’s experimental, like Primer it’s thought provoking and original, and like Primer there’s basically nothing else I can say about why I like this movie without saying something about the movie that I feel would spoil the experience of seeing it for the first time.
That’s not to say that I’ll be spoiling the plot if you keep reading, but there’s aspects of this film other than the plot that I need to talk about to tell you why I like the film so much and I truly feel that going in as blind as possible is the best way to see it.
So let’s get this out of the way: I love this film and I recommend you see it. Stop reading now and go watch it and then come back and we’ll talk.
