Lost Weekend I: Upstream Color

Upstream Color will make you feel like you are having a dream. Its scenes are sound-tracked with haunting ambient music instead of dialogue, it contains no exposition, and its most dramatic, climactic moment is a scene in which one person looks up from a table to make eye contact with another person. It is a movie that will make you feel like you are floating, and it does all this despite being a science fiction movie about a mad scientist, a mysterious creature, telepathy, and experiments on pigs. It’s an amazing achievement of storytelling and acting, if you can find a quiet place to watch it in the dark for about an hour and half, I guarantee you will be left with your mind racing.
