The Thief, whose head is made of sun material, lures Kristen into eating a bio-engineered worm that replicates in her body, changing her behaviour. She drifts and meets a man who has undergone the same experiment. They are swept up in to a cycle that inexplicably draws them closer to a natural world they don’t understand, as they shed their life styles and identities.
With undertones of Lynch and Malik, but in a style that is uniquely Carruth, Up stream Color is an intellectual and sensory experience close to a new perception of cinema. Like Mulholland Drive, Upstream Color has given rise to an online subculture devoted to unravelling its elliptical and compelling narrative.
