This Evil Dead Remake Actually Ain't So Bad

Upstream Color Shane Carruth
Upstream Color: I confess I wasn't enraptured by Shane Carruth's Primer, especially given my natural interest in just about any movie about time travel. It wasn't the dense mechanics of the movie that put me off so much as Carruth's film-wide flat affect that seemed to deliberately obscure its details, major and minor alike, to no end that I could understand. (The obvious answer is to watch the movie again; call me crazy but I'm not particularly fond of the sensation during a movie that I'll have to rewatch it to make any sense of what's going on and what's not.) Maybe the supposed love story element of Upstream Color, which sounds even more elliptical than Primer, will give me something to grab onto in Carruth's long-awaited return.
