YMMV: Upstream Color
  • Critical Dissonance: Slightly. It has high ratings on Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic with a score of 86% and 81 respectively, but a 6.8 on IMDB.
  • Vanity Project: As with Carruth's previous film, Primer, he wrote, directed, starred in, co-produced, co-edited, composed the music for this movie. Also like that aforementioned movie, it has received generally good reception.
  • X Meets Y: David Cronenberg meets Terrence Malick.
    • Regarding the director as a whole, Steven Soderbergh remarked to Entertainment Weekly that he views Shane Carruth "as the illegitimate offspring of David Lynch and James Cameron".
