Finally I have seen Upstream Color – long awaited “one man show” movie. Written, directed, produced, shot, co-edited, musical score composed all by Shane Carruth. I was quite curious as I read the article in Wired about him and his previous movie almost 10 years old Primer. I just roughly remember I tried to watch Primer but I was not excited much by it and did not even finish it. But the article built my interest. Upstream Color is a sort o chameleon probably similar to his creator – drama, thriller, love story, sci-fi, mystery … all these change in rapid pace as the actual scenes to suddenly stop in one loooong take. But by far the best this movie has extraordinary ambient/industrial soundtrack – 10/10! This is the piece of its own.
Time has probably come to try Primer again.
