Sepia toning lends a romantic (even wistful) quality to Larry Jordan's film VISIONS OF A CITY, which he shot in San Francisco in 1957 and edited in 1978. The pace is unirritating, in contrast to the San Francisco of today; but unlike the equal weight Helen Levill gives to all her subjects, there is an internal evolutionary development in the Jordan film that ultimately delivers a story. Until the introduction of the human protagonist, poet Michael McClure, we are treated to an extravagant display of visual delights.
