Upstream Color (2013) at 366 Weird Movies

Seen: At the Brattle Theatre in Cambridge.

I have to admit, that while I've seen Primer and I remember really liking it, I barely remember it because I watched it in high school, once. I've been meaning to re-watch it ever since, but oops. I haven't. That didn't stop me from getting excited about writer/director/star's long-awaited followup, Upstream Color, though! It's a beautifully shot, strangely fragmented film with effective soundscapes and great core performances. The opening sequence made me extremely uncomfortable and seemed to go on forever so it took me a little while to get into it, but once it all clicked I really loved it. It's like this lovely/weird mix of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and David Lynch, sort of. It was also extremely hard to write about, but I tried.

For my full review of Upstream Color head over to 366 Weird Movies!
