Putty Hill: A beautifully realized portrait of a close-knit community on the outskirts of Baltimore. 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.
Hamilton: Chronicles two summer days in the life of two young parents living in a Baltimore suburb.

This kind of video makes you wonder if there was a script.

There are two discs in this, one titled Putty Hill and the other Hamilton. I grew up in Baltimore, MD so thought this might be interesting. I only watched part of Hamilton. It was plodding and seemed sometimes like a home movie.

I couldn't watch the entire movie and didn't even bother to watch Putty Hill.

I suppose if you're interested in a well-shot look at empty youth you might enjoy this, but I found it totally uninteresting.
