Peter Hutton's delicate cinematic observations of light and form in his many silent films have won praise, and some critics have called his latest “sublime.” Majestic stately compositions showing the building, voyage, and dismantling of a container ship offer explosions of color animated by small movements—the spray painting of a hull, distant waves. But Hutton's beauties, such as a ship's red railing set against the deep blue sea, seem overobvious, and what's worse, his tableaux seem merely strung together rather than interacting dynamically, making the whole film less than the sum of its parts. 60 min.
