What a film experience!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Upstream Color [Blu-ray]  [US Import] (Blu-ray)
I saw this film at the Sundance London Film Festival in April. I was unprepared for the extent to which it mystifies without a semblance of clear, or on some points any, explanation. I know from reading other reviews on Amazon.com and elsewhere that I did grasp the bare essentials on my only viewing so far but I also know that this remarkable film has a lot more to be discovered. I'll be buying it as soon as possible to explore it again and again. It's the complete opposite to the usual Hollywood movie, with little in the way of straightforward narrative (but it won't be unfamiliar territory for David Lynch fans). It's demanding, hypnotic and enthralling. Perhaps it'll deserve 5 stars after further viewing.
Added 9 Feb 2014: I've now watched it on Blu ray. I think I'll leave it at 4stars. I still think it's a fascinating film but I'd hoped that the Blu ray would have subtitles so that I'd get more insight into the film's meanings by understanding more of the dialogue. Unfortunately Metrodome, of whose releases I'm becoming very wary, don't seem to see the need to cater for the hard of hearing.
