Port Noir2014

  • 3.7
Within the vast machine landscape of Terminal Island, the textural strata of a one-hundred year old boat shop provides a glimpse into Los Angeles Harbor's disappearing past. Dwarfed by massive container terminals, the cumulative scenic details of the last working boatyard, often recast as an underworld backdrop for fictional crime dramas, evoke imaginary departures and a hidden world at sea.

I can't say much; I dozed off during the film.

stunning use of soundscape to enhance this visual poem's sense of nostalgia, past glory and, ultimately, sadness for the passing of time.

This is a strong work of art exploring the same avant-garde terrain as Baille's CASTRO STREET. I loved the tug between visual music and poetic cinema. The sound was outstanding.
