Still image from the film Upstream Color
A man and woman are drawn together, entangled in the lifecycle of an ageless organism. Identity becomes an illusion as they struggle to assemble the loose fragments of wrecked lives.

Shane Carruth's new film is one of the most talked about films of the year. This is what top ctitcs are saying:

A deeply sincere, elliptical movie about being and nature, men and women, self and other. Manohla Dargis, New York Times

Bold, impassioned, ecstatically beautiful…in a class by itself at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. Scott Foundas, Village Voice

Mind-blowing! Plunges audiences into a realm of unknown pleasures. Steve Dollar, Wall Street Journal

Carruth’s ideas are among the most philosophically sophisticated in the contemporary cinema. Richard Brody, The New Yorker
