Aro Recommended Upstream Color


USA 2013, 96 minutes
Dir. Shane Carruth
Rating: [M]
Genres: Science Fiction / Independent

Topics: Mind-bender.


“[An] elliptical and utterly fascinating adventure in cinema, one that defies simple explanations, but worms its way into the brain.”~Newsday

Aroview: Shane Carruth follows up his cult time travel indie PRIMER with this immersive and abstract tale of two strangers whose lives are intertwined by a mysterious organism.

Best to abandon expectations of a compelling narrative thread in order to maximise potential enjoyment of its other sensory pleasures. As well as playing one of the lead roles, the polymathic Carruth also wrote, directed, produced, photographed, co-edited and composed the score for this film.
