I watched "Upstream Color", the latest Shane Carruth film (the guy who made "Primer").
It is definitely an art film, and it is not very accessible when you are watching it. Shot on a Panasonic GH2 DSLR, and the budget was probably very low, which makes it very interesting from that angle.
The movie has very little dialog and long passages of only visuals guiding you through the story, and it has a disjointed style to the storytelling following two protagonists and their relationship to each other and others. While it might not seem like it for the first half of the film, it does have a point. But unlike Primer which had so much information you tried your best just to keep up and sort thigns in your head, this has almost the opposite approach, not giving you much information at all, making you constantly grasp at straws to find meaning in it. Unfortunately this makes subsequent viewings less rewarding, possibly even tedious, unless you fall in love with the cinematographic or acting aspects of it.
Also watched "Mama", horror presented by Del Toro and directed by a fairly fresh filmmaker.
The film is just "meh". The ghost follows the asian design with black hair and creepiness, the plot is really thin, the entire film just plods along procrastinating for 80 minutes before finally deciding to reach the finale. The film becomes surprisingly interesting in the last 10 minutes thanks to the score finally doing something and some very beautiful yet creepy effects. It's way too little way too late though.
Jessica Chastain is smoking in it though. Always something.
Skip it and watch "Insidious" if you already haven't. If you already have watched Insidious, watch it again, because that is a horror film that manages to stay close to the tropes while introducing fresh aspects and approaches to horror films.
