Movie Reviews

  • 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
    4 of 5 by Manohla Dargis [New York Times ]
  • this enigma-delivery system from a sharp mind has enthralling moments but becomes a bit enervating in its self-seriousness
    2.5 of 4 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 ]
  • there is an undeniable pull to the stream-of-consciousness storytelling filmmaker Shane Carruth ("Primer") uses in "Upstream Color."
    3 of 5 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
    3 of 5 by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York ]
  • 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
    3.5 of 4 by Simon Abrams [Chicago Sun-Times ]
  • 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
    2 of 4 by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger ]
  • "Upstream Color," an erbp release, is not rated but contains some violence and some bloody and disturbing images
    3 of 5 by Christy Lemire [Associated Press ]
