Intriguing and enigmatic.

More a series of obtuse moments loosely connected by the most threadbare of plots, it's unfortunately one of those films some will praise merely because they don't want to be left out in the cold.

Upstream Colour appears to have been made by a Terrence Malick fan injected with a David Cronenberg parasite.

Upstream Colour has the makings of a cult movie, though it's not a cult I feel inclined to join.

The themes may be numerous and varied - concerns about drugs, surveillance, disease, alienation - but the story does have an impeccable (albeit deeply buried) logic to it.

In the best possible way it'll get under your skin like the parasitic worms dispensed by the Thief.

Little White Lies

Baffling, intoxicating, elegant, Shane Carruth's long-overdue follow-up to Primer is among the year's best.

At times the movie has a stunning George Saunders-level sci-fi blues . . .  but really, it's NYC hipster existentialism.

Too-clever filmmaker Shane Carruth'sfascinating 2004 time-travel thriller Primer was confusing enough, but he goes a step further with this utterly impenetrable freak-out mystery.

The danger with a style that is this closed-off is that it can repel our pleasure as well as our understanding.

A confounding intellectual mystery, an enigmatic philosophical science fantasy that's like a cinematic Moebius strip.

If Upstream Color is not quite the masterpiece we were hoping for, it's a film with its own affectless mystery and chill.

Carruth's mindmelt of mesmerism, metempsychosis and micro-organisms will leave some a little cold, most bemused if not utterly baffled, and near all needing to see it a second time.

The most visually imaginative American film since David Lynch's Eraserhead.

This gorgeous, unknowable, deeply affecting film makes Primer look almost conventional, given time travel is a genre filmgoers know a little something of.

A perfectly judged, strikingly beautiful film, but also a lunatic enterprise which invites - even welcomes - befuddlement as much as wonder. A true original.

Even if you don't know what's going on, you rarely doubt that Carruth knows exactly what he's doing.

ABC Radio (Australia)

Carruth's second feature proudly follows his debut Primer (2004) in its audacity, intellect and astonishing originality. Carruth does not make films for fools, but nor does he try and fool anyone; if you're willing to look, it's all there.

It's a film that audiences will either loath or admire; I doubt it can be loved, too austere and distant, too dissonant, too incoherent in fact

The dialogue is sparse and much of the imagery and action is open to interpretation. I was intrigued, frustrated, repulsed, bewildered and ultimately bored
