This was just way to weird for me
This is Shane Carruth's Second major film. And like his first film "Primer", This is a movie Shane wrote, directed, produced, starred in and he created the music for, And it's very evident that this man is really able to work within a budget. Primer had a budget of only $7,000, and even this was made dirt cheap at $50,000. This is a movie that prides itself at not holding the audience's hand while they watch it. The first time you watch this movie, you'll most likely feel a little confused as the movie goes on. But don't believe that this movie is some sort of giant artistic metaphor like "The Dance Of Reality". The film is showing you an actual story, and everything that appears on screen is very literal. With "Upstream Color, Shane Carruth has dramatically improved with cinematography. With some cinematic sequences that seem like they would be more suited to "The Tree of Life". The acting and chemistry between the main actors is great and both are very talented.This film is original, inventive and pretty intelligent and thought provoking. If you want to see a well-acted, directed and overall well-executed drama about connection, then I highly recommend this movie.
Movie is unwatchable for the volume level being too much variable. Either dialogues are not loud enough or you go deaf from the scenes that have that 'weird pulsating sound'. Or be prepared to constantly change your volume.
