    Upstream Color (2013)

    I was not a fan at all of Primer, I found it confusing and pretentious, yet when I saw the trailer for Carruth's new film, I was definitely intrigued, thankfully I can say this is a major improvement over Primer, while on paper the "plot" for this movie probably sounds pretty out there and weird, it somehow works, we're not supposed to understand everything going on here, whereas I felt we were with Primer, rather you just go along with it as a visual experience, whereas primer had next to no visual flair, here the cinematography and music combine to create a dreamlike tone throughout, i admit a film like this is definitely not for everyone, but i feel if you go in with the right mindset, you can still enjoy and appreciate it
