Mala Noche

78 mins

in English

USA | 1985 | dir. Gus Van Sant, with Tim Streeter, Doug Cooeyate, Ray Monge

Gus Van Sant masterfully weaves an atmospheric black-and-white imagery with lush sound in his debut feature Mala Noche set in his hometown of Portland. Following a romantic deadbeat with a wayward crush on a handsome Mexican immigrant, it is a fascinating capsule from a time and place that continues to haunt its director’s work and an important prelude to the New Queer Cinema of the nineties.
