Along with announcing plans to shoot his next film this summer, just a few hours ago we were promised a new trailer for Shane Carruth‘s Sundance-bound Upstream Color and like clockwork, it has now arrived. If you missed this morning’s article it dove into many aspects of the Primer follow-up, described as “intense and hypnotically powerful,” as we follow a woman who is “abducted and seemingly brainwashed via an organic material harvested from a specific flower.”
While the latest trailer doesn’t directly reveal this thread, we are given more of the story, which finds our lead linking up with a man, played by Carruth, and they fall in love, only “they come to realize he may also have been subjected to the same process.” Even though it premieres in just a few days, we also got release news, as a short theatrical run (complete with pop-up screenings) will begin on April 5th in major cities, following a digital release.

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we believe it’s our duty to highlight the recent, recommended titles that have recently hit the interwebs. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of […]
