Mala Noche

Movie Information

In Brief: Though not being a general fan of Gus Van Sant, I find this film, Van Sant’s low-budget feature debut, slightly less objectionable than some of his later output, if only for its DIY aesthetic and pseudo-noir feel. At the very least, the director’s frank depiction of homosexuality was certainly ahead of its time, and an indication of his future work.   Classic World Cinema by Courtyard Gallery will present Mala Noche Friday, Aug. 5, at 8 p.m. at Phil Mechanic Studios (109 Roberts St., River Arts District, upstairs in the Railroad Library).
