Putty Hill Showtimes and Tickets
Release Date: 2011-02-18
Duration: 1hr 27min
By weaving poised portrait shots of lethargic suburban life with interviews, Porterfield’s second feature blends genres to create a haunting piece of cinema. Putty Hill avoids both the savagery of Larry Clark or the self-conscious bizarreness of Harmony Korine, as it examines the aftermath of a young heroin user’s premature death. Instead, the director allows the restless teenagers and fatigued adults Â– and their slice of dilapidated Baltimore Â– to speak clearly and serenely for themselves.
