Download Upstream Color Full Movie and it is 2013 Hollywood Drama film directed by Shane Carruth. Greetings again from the darkness. This is no typical movie, so these will not be typical comments. In 2004, Shane Carruth became something of a cult hero with the Sundance Festival crowd when his debut film PRIMER won a Grand Jury Award. Nine years later, we get his follow-up the ultimate artsy, indie film for those who thrive on analysis and prefer to avoid a story ending wrapped up with a neat bow.

These comments will not give you much, but I can tell you the screening had many viewers who left frustrated and confused. The fragmented narrative can be a bit disorienting and it avoids the usual staple of a resolution at the end. The audience knows more than the characters, yet the audience is baffled while the characters just continue on.

The first segment of the film is when it’s at its most traditional. We see Thief perform some type of worm/parasite procedure that slowly brainwashes Kris or leads to mind control or loss of personality just depends how you prefer to describe it. We then see The Sampler help her overcome thanks to a blood transfusion on his pig farm. Yes, really. Finally, Kris bonds with Jeff as they seek to reassemble their lives and re-discover themselves. Watching them bicker over who belongs to what memory is frightening and fascinating. It makes you question the definition of personal identity, and what if we lost that.

Nature plays a huge role here, along with the connection to Thoreau’s Walden. Many will use the term pretentious. Some will call it boring. Still others will be drawn in by the imagery and sound. Shane Carruth does not fit Hollywood and neither do his films. He is a writer, producer, director, co-editor, cinematographer, and actor. He clearly has a love of the material and his choice of Amy Seimetz really makes the film work. She is outstanding. The tired phrase it’s not for everyone certainly applies here, but if you are a Terrence Malick fan or just enjoy being challenged by somewhat abstract themes, this one is worth a look.

Kris is attacked one night, and hypnotized, using a grub with hypnotic properties, administered by a thief. She follows the thief’s instructions to give him everything, even taking out loans. After the worms are extracted, she wakes up to find her life ruined.
