While pretty much every big title to premiere last month at the Sundance Film Festival is now out of the bag, and perhaps a bit less mysterious as a result, one that remains beguiling — even to those who have seen it — is Shane Carruth‘s “Upstream Color.” The film written, produced, edited, shot, starring and directed by the polymath, it probably won’t surprise you to know he scored the thing as well. And while the movie is now just over a month away, if you can’t wait, you can check out the goosebump raising score right now.
It has quietly been made available on the official website for the movie, and you can go ahead and order it up right now on vinyl with a digital copy included. There’s also a deluxe package that includes a copy of the poster and the book “Walden” by Henry David Thoreau, which weighs heavily on the movie. And while our review out of Park City called the movie “…breathtaking and brilliant…thematically rich, layered and hypnotic…a maddeningly abstract and romantic examination of love, who we are as lovers, what our love does to one another, and how that’s connected to the nature of all things” you’ll undoubtedly have your own unique visceral and cerebral reaction.
“Upstream Color” arrives on April 5th. Turn up your speakers and listen below.
