Local Color

I'm not a huge movie goer and I when I do go I usually steer away from most main stream movies. They just don't do it for me.
We've been waiting for this certain movie to be released for quite sometime and it just was put off, and put off again. Finally "Local Color" has been released and it's only showing in one theater around us. It's about a young guy who has art running through his veins. He has to deal with a ignorant drunk father and many others around him that just don't get his passion. Until he meets an old Russian master painter who himself is a drinking, crotchety fellow. He sees this young mans talent and reluctantly takes him under his wing.
Like anything else when your familiar with a subject it seems easier to connect or want to connect. I really liked it and thought it had some substance behind it. Was it a block buster? No. I don't care, I recommend it anyways.

The least advertised movies are many times the best.

I'm glad you enjoyed it! I'll have to see if it's playing anywhere near me. It might be at this one theater, we're going there this weekend to see Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
