Portrait of Sharon1960

  • 3.0
A kinetic collage of superimposed warm, soft-colored 16mm film set to percussive jazz, Lawrence Jordan's PORTRAIT OF SHARON features beat poet Kirby Doyle on a motorcycle and Sharon "Didi" Morill, poet and onetime girlfriend of the saxophonist Gerry Mulligan, blinking her big eyes and sharing her youth with the camera. Landscapes and clouds dance in rhythm, conjuring the contemporary spirit of Jack Kerouac's "On the Road." - Stela Jelincic

"Portrait of Susan" is a splicing of slips between a man riding a motorcycle and a woman naked and waiting for someone. The film has a triptych of songs and it feels like it might make sense if there was more change in the film between songs, because instead of flowing with the change of songs, it just feels as if the film was just too long for the song selected. It is a nice piece of film and enjoyable anyway.
