Movie Info

The main action takes place in East Africa and revolves around a mystical substance called Bulu -- a rare and sacred powder said to bestow the power of prophecy. Hugo Winter, a roguish American drug smuggler, sets out on a quest to find the source of the Bulu, hoping to bring back enough to solve his financial woes. Following his visions, he travels to Uganda and looks to enlist the help of a guide there who he has seen vividly in his hallucinations. In Fort Lugard, he meets two sisters who say they can help him find what he's looking for, but they have competing agendas. Kisakye, a devout Christian, wants to sell the drug to save her village, whereas Angela, a criminal hustler, is only interested in getting rich quick. As Hugo follows them deeper into the jungle, he begins to doubt whether his prophetic visions are leading him to death or glory.

Critic Reviews for Imperial Blue

All Critics (3) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (1)

  • Drugs might be the nexus here, but really Imperial Blue is all about a stranger in a strange land, unable and largely unwilling to curtail his own ego in his pursuit of illicit thrills and illicit money.

  • Ultimately the film's slow pace and unique storytelling keep Imperial Blue at the level of good as opposed to great.

  • Director-cowriter Dan Moss is working with a great idea here, but the script perhaps wasn't quite ready to shoot, as it is riddled with gaps in logic.
