Local Color 1.0 stars

Local Color movie poster

George Gallo’s semi-autobiographical coming-of-age film, extra-earnest, middling-maudlin, about a teenage old-fashioned representational landscape painter who nuzzles under the wing of a cantankerous old Russian impressionist, one summer in Pennsylvania in the mid-Seventies (that’s 1970s, not 1870s). It dishes out a lot of fundamental art talk, only once verging on the insulting, and the cinematography is rich enough in color to back up the pretense of sensitivity. With Armin Mueller-Stahl, Trevor Morgan, Samantha Mathis, Ron Perlman, and Ray Liotta. 2007.
