    This intricate, romantic thriller has already been hailed as one of the best films of 2013 after appearing at just a handful of festivals. The second feature from director/star Shane Carruth (his first was the cult indie time travel film Primer), UPSTREAM COLOR opens with a man preparing for… something. It’s not clear what until the film follows him to a bar where he abducts a woman (Seimitz) and submits her to a bizarre brainwashing regimen that includes passages from Thoreau’s Walden and a weird parasitic worm. As the layers of the film’s narrative are pulled back, a strange and complex conspiracy is revealed that has permanently affected dozens of victims. But that’s only the bedrock for what Carruth is actually after: constructing a deeply felt story of the relationship that develops between two of those victims. Stunning, emotional, surreal, and gorgeous, UPSTREAM COLOR is a film that we’ll be talking about for a long time. (2013) dir Shane Carruth w/Carruth, Amy Seimetz, Thiago Martins [96 min]

    “Bold, impassioned, ecstatically beautiful… in a class by itself at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.” – Scott Foundas, Village Voice

    “Full of big bold ideas that demand, and reward, close and careful viewing and contemplation.” – James Rocchi, The Hitlist/MSN
