Storyline

An aging loan shark (the late Victor Argo, "Taxi Driver," "King of New York") wrestles with regret and redemption in director Art Jones' film that rails against homogenization while celebrating what makes New York unique. Hugo thinks that New York is losing its soul, and that faceless buildings and vacant people are replacing the old-time New York he loves. But when visions interfere with his daily rounds, he must determine for himself what is real and what is not. Features rarely seen views of New York, including a climactic scene shot atop the Brooklyn Bridge Written by Great Jones Productions

Some great cinematic moments
11 July 2004 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

I saw Lustre at the Avignon Film Festival in France recently, after the film there was an interesting Q&A with it's director Art Jones a genuine fellow I have to say, which makes any criticism of his film a lot harder. The most striking thing about Lustre are the scenes shot on top of the Brooklyn Bridge, so effective was the camera work that I felt I was up there too, no fancy Hollywood special effects here, in addition there was a real sense of danger which gave the performances an edge that was missing in many crucial parts of the film. I credit the director for the concept and the execution and his willingness to put his money where his mouth is. Despite it's short comings, the film is worth seeing, Victor Argo was sick during the shoot and sadly died shortly afterwards, the film is a fitting memorial to an enduring character actor who takes his final bow in his one and only lead performance (Bravo). On a final note, the film deals with issues that one can easily relate to, regret being the principal of those issues. Mr. Jones is a good writer with a lot to say, he has the potential to be a good director. I look forward to his next picture to see if he can fulfil that promise.
