Upstream Colour

Not your average romcom

(Edit) 03/02/2014

Basically your eveyrday tale of boy-meets-girl who gets tasered, force fed some kind of worm harvested from the roots of a wild orchid, then hypnotised and made to memorise Thoreau's 'Walden' before having the aforementioned worm transplanted into a piglet with whom she shares some kind of telepathic link. It's classic disturbing body horror with parasitic worms and self-injury, somehow wrapped in Terence Malick sugar rather than David Cronenberg's rather more dark and bitter coating. Fans of Carruth's earlier 'Primer' may appreciate what I can only describe as quantum cinematography and the soundtrack he provided for the film, but you will need to keep a clear head while watching so you can try to figure out just what the hell might be going on.
