The Filmlings – Carruth’s Cerebral Cinema

This week on the Filmling’s podcast Alex and Jonathan watched, and rewatched, the only two films directed by Shane Carruth: Primer (2004) and Upstream Color (2013). Both films are available on Netflix so go watch them before listening. In the episode we talk about cinema that engages the full attention of the audience, narrative that implies the plot rather than telling or showing, and cutting techniques. We also predict the ending of M. Night Shyamalan’s new film Split just from the trailer.
