I Have to Apologize: I Have No Idea What is Going On In This First ‘UPSTREAM COLOR’ Trailer


Primer exists on the fringes of sci-fi cinema.  The true die-hard, sci-fi fanboys who enjoy thought-provoking cinema gravitate to the film like bugs to the light, but the film doesn’t have the broad reaching appeal as something like Star Trek has.  As a fan of the film, I have followed the director’s path over the years to see what warped view of reality he may present to us next.  Alas, not much has been heard from the director since his directorial debut outside of the fact that he apparently helped out on Rian Johnson’s Looper (according to Johnson).  However, it was just announced late last week that Primer’s director, Shane Carruth, was going to be debuting his follow-up to his 2004 film at the upcoming Sundance Film Festival; where Primer previously debuted.  It is entitled Upstream Color.  To get people excited about the cryptically titled film, the first teaser has been released.  The good news is that it looks beautiful and impressive.  The bad news for some will be the fact that the film really gives you no indication of what the film is about.  I’m perfectly okay with that fact to be honest.  I love the idea of going into the film almost blind.  Since any dissection of what is going on in this trailer seems fruitless, I’ll just simply encourage you to watch it for yourself and see if the film’s arthouse sci-fi aesthetic is for you.

Somewhere between growing up on a steady diet of Saturday morning trips to the local comic-book shop, collecting an unhealthy amount of action figures, and frequent viewings of Ray Harryhausen and Hammer Horror films, came forth a nerdy boy that was torn between journalism and the arts. In high school, Michael found himself writing a movie column for the school newspaper. Yet, he went on to get a BFA in Studio Art at Webster University. When not writing about films, you can still find him discussing classic horror, collecting action figures, and reading Batman. Clearly, not much has changed.
