Product Description

A beautifully realized portrait of a close-knit community on the outskirts of Baltimore, Putty Hill is the second feature from celebrated young filmmaker Matt Porterfield. At a neighborhood karaoke bar, friends and family gather to remember a young man who passed away. Knowing little about his final days, they attempt to reconstruct his life. In the process, they offer a window onto their own lives, an evocative picture of working-class America, dislocated from the progress and mobility around them, but united in pursuit of a shared dream. Exquisitely shot and employing surprising documentary techniques, Putty Hill is one of the most exciting American indie films in years.

This two disc collector's edition also includes Hamilton (2006, 65 minutes) the debut film from Matt Porterfield. A delicate, beautiful work, Hamilton chronicles two summer days in the life of a young family: Lena, 17, and Joe, 20, two recent and accidental parents residing in a diverse suburban neighborhood in northeast Baltimore.

Review

"A FRESH, VITAL AND EMOTIONALLY ENGAGING INDIE BREAKTHROUGH. I m just as excited about this film, and this filmmaker, as I was after seeing Stranger Than Paradise or She s Gotta Have It 25 years ago." --Andrew O'Hehir, Salon

"A great, deep, powerful new indie film." --Roger Ebert

"A wondrous movie... Extraordinary... If there's an independent cinema, this movie is it, and if there's a new director, here he is." --Richard Brody, The New Yorker

Format: DVD
If you are a fan of naturalistic, documentary style footage of poor folks, this has it. If you demand plot and action, this doesn't have it. Since the subject is the funeral of a young man who overdosed on drugs, much of it consists of people commenting on his life and the relatives in general. There is even a strange post-wake party at a low budget karaoke bar and diner with a hired deejay. I hesitate to call this "poverty porn" but the backstory is nowhere near as compelling as "Winter's Bone" which was a must see. "Putty Hill" simply loses it's energy and focus halfway through.

Good reality view of Baltimore life. Matt is destined to be a big name someday based on these movies so early in his career.

This is a 2-disc set of movies made by Matt Porterfield, a filmmaker living in Baltimore. He directed both films and either wrote or co-wrote both as well. His movies are artistic and are filmed in Baltimore. This collection also has some extras and commentaries by the director. These are well-made dramas, with strong visuals, about young people's lives in Baltimore. Highly recommended.
