Saw Wajdja is thaters. Loved it. It's also the first film to be filmed in Saudi Arabia...and by a woman!

Upstream Color (2013)
The UK poster for this was first image I could find that wasn't gigantic. It cracks me up that they felt the need to re-spell the title of the movie. Anyway, as a big fan of Primer, I've wanted to see this since it came out and finally felt like I was in the right mood this morning. I just finished watching it and I think I'm a little underwhelmed. I thought it was beautifully put together—the cinematography, the sound, everything—and I enjoyed the overall mood, but it just didn't seem to add up to much unfortunately. It does seem like the kind of movie that I might keep thinking about so maybe I'll change my mind, but right now I see it as kind of a missed opportunity.

Watch it again. I watched it three times in a row the night I first saw it and each time got better. It's one of my favorite films now. Just so you know, in case this means anything, Shane Carruth once again was the director, editor, main actor, sound engineer, producer, coffee guy for this film. The dude is a breath of fresh air in the independent film scene.

Right, so Lars Von Trier is quickly becoming my favorite director. I was absolutely blown away by this film. I can't even review it because anything I say would fall short of doing it justice.

I still haven't seen it. Dogville, Melancholia, and Dancer in the Dark were amazing though. I need to get on that.

Oh my god, yes you most certainly do.

I feel the same. I enjoyed it more than you seemed to but I can't stop thinking about how much better Primer is. I'm definitely willing to give it another try, but that thought just makes me want to watch Primer again.

Been meaning to watch that. Dogville and Melancholia are two slow moving films that are simply mesmerizing. The latter is definitely Kirsten Dunst's finest hour, I think. I badly want to see Nymphomaniac.

The last film I watched was Sunshine (2007) and about halfway through I realized that I had already seen it. I want to like the film because it's got beautiful imagery and great ideas but I kind of had to force myself to watch it - both times. Just sorta boring.

Yeah, I know Carruth did everything. One of my first thoughts after watching the movie was that that might be part of the problem. I think he might have been better served by collaborating with someone.

The friend who suggested I watch it referred to Melancholia as "Antichrist watered down for the masses" and I think he was spot on. Loved Melancholia, but loved Antichrist way more.

I watched The Act Of Killing yesterday and it blew my mind. Possibly the most fascinating documentary I have ever seen.
