“..with its fragmentation and mysteries, "Upstream Color" offers itself up as a puzzle as well as a philosophical toy that you can spin and spin until the cafe closes and kicks you into the night..”
by Manohla Dargis [New York Times]
2.5 of 4

“..this enigma-delivery system from a sharp mind has enthralling moments but becomes a bit enervating in its self-seriousness..”
by Farran Smith Nehme [New York Post]
“..there's a thin line between what's truly mysterious and what's totally bogus..”
by Stephanie Zacharek [Village Voice]
3 of 5

“..there is an undeniable pull to the stream-of-consciousness storytelling filmmaker Shane Carruth ("Primer") uses in "Upstream Color."..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]

“..no one is going to explain any of this for you-and the slightly snobby implication of Upstream Color is that explanations are for suckers..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
3.5 of 4

“..it's the long-awaited follow-up to the equally sophisticated 2004 time travel drama "Primer" by American indie wunderkind Shane Carruth, and it's every bit as good..”
by Simon Abrams [Chicago Sun-Times]
2 of 4

“..but for many audiences, this is just a slightly odd movie that soon becomes incomprehensible, leaving them with nothing but a headache. And for some critics, I suspect, another chance to add a trendy something to the emperor's new clothes closet..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
3 of 5

“.."Upstream Color," an erbp release, is not rated but contains some violence and some bloody and disturbing images..”
by Christy Lemire [Associated Press]
