Editorial Reviews

Review

"Impressive! Argo rarely had a showcase like this and deserved one." -- Chicago Tribune

"Jones' filmmaking is stunning and, more important, the passion for this city [New York]--its people and landscape--is pure." -- Salon.com

Product Description

An aging loan shark (the late Victor Argo, Taxi Driver, King of New York) wrestles with the regret and redemption in director Art Jones' film that rails against homogenization while celebrating what makes New York unique. Hugo thinks that New York is losing its soul, and that faceless buildings and vacant people are replacing the old-time New York he loves. But when visions interfere with his daily rounds, he must determine for himself what is real and what is not.

Features rarely seen views of New York, including a climactic scene shot atop the Brooklyn Bridge.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

4.0 out of 5 stars What the ....was that! January 3, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Like the companion piece, "The Electric Chair", I was constantly asking myself, "Self, what are you wasting your valuable time on here?" So, I had to watch it a second time to "get it." Not every-one's cup of tea, unless you are into very subtle messages delivered in a bizarre fashion. Overall, highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great unknown film. December 15, 2009
Format:DVD
This film has "indie" written all over it. But it doesn't make it any less of a great work of art.

The late Victor Argo's performance was wonderful. He brilliantly conveyed the emotional turmoil of a man who not only had to face the reality of everything he knew and loved changing and dying around him, but the responsibility and enormity of his visions. He has no idea why this is happening to him, and does not want the responsibility of these visions. It's driving him crazy and ruining his business and his social standing in the criminal world he once commanded respect in. Yet the inexorable pull of his destiny takes him into a different world, and transforms him forever.

There is a strong undercurrent of raw emotional honesty in the film. Argo projects the real feelings that his character experiences brilliantly. It's nearly impossible to avoid experiencing an empathy with his struggles.

It was also done completely in digital; at a time when this was not the norm. The director handled this uncharted territory very well.

Films like this are rare. And frankly, director Art Jones, and Victor Argo deserve more recognition for this film than they received for it.
