Upstream Color Reviews

Ray Pride

The remarkable Amy Seimetz is as central to the film as women in Krzysztof Kieslowski's late films, like Irène Jacob in "Three Colors: Red" and "The Double Life of Véronique" or Juliette Binoche in "Three Colors: Blue."

No amount of concentrated analysis can really explain the level of deep emotion that Upstream Color effortlessly evokes.

Upstream Color is a trippy and enjoyable exploration of connections both direct and indirect.

It's evocative, but beneath the stylised direction and the mesmerising soundtrack, perhaps a little cold, like a concept album without a fully formed idea to drive it.

An assured and artfully ragged mosaic of glassy nonlinearity.

Carruth's visual approach, saved from abstraction by his own rapid, forward-leaping editing, is extremely assured. Seimetz is a fine and expressively haunted actress. I look forward to the enigmas in Carruth's next picture.

The miracle of Upstream Color is that a film so carefully and exquisitely composed can yield so many moments of open-ended cinematic rapture.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

However you watch it, it's a movie that will mean more for you if you don't worry about what's happening minute-by-minute and, instead, just let your mind wander as its muted images and snippets of dreamy poetry flow.

Sight and Sound

Clearly, the film is intended as a tactile experience of poetic ideas, of modern disconnection and biophysical insecurity and existential doubt, and the clarity of these anxieties is bruising and stunning.

Iit's a film that I'd like to go back and look at again and give it a second go.

It's not that it's not intriguing, but Carruth has withheld any sense of glue or cohesion or even a clue as to what he's getting at.

Film School Rejects

You have to work a bit harder to put the pieces together and you're responsible for the answers, but the effort is paid back with an exhalation, a single expression on Kris' face and the recognition of it in your own.

By abandoning the need for specific interpretation, Carruth nails the fundamental inscrutability of the universe while remaining in awe of it the whole way through.

The Playlist

Thematically rich, layered and hypnotic, Upstream Color is a maddeningly abstract and romantic examination of love, who we are as lovers, what our love does to one another, and how that's connected to the nature of all things.

In a world where there are music stores that sell CDs of worm music, telepathically connected worm people and pigs commune on a farm and plot their revenge against a mad scientist. Well, not really, but sort of.

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.
