Ask JKM a Question: Upstream Color (2013)?
A regular reader, Jason, writes:
“Have you seen Upstream Color (2013)? And if so what are your thoughts? Io9 recently listed it as the best SF movie of the year.”
Jason: I was not even aware of this film until you mentioned it to me in your e-mail, but now, indeed, I have sought it out and watched it twice. I am glad you directed me to it. I wouldn’t have wanted to miss it.
All I can say right now is…wow.
For those not yet acquainted with the film, Upstream Color is the second effort from Shane Carruth, the artist behind one of my favorite genre films of recent vintage, Primer (2004).
I will review Upstream Color in detail this Friday, so keep an eye out. Thanks for the question, and readers don't forget to ask me your questions at Muirbusiness@yahoo.com.
