Set in the belly of Los Angeles' criminal underworld, Arc is the story of Paris Pritchert, a former police officer turned drug dealer and addict, who embarks on a quest to find a missing child in the hope of redeeming his eroding character. The only catch is, like all addicts, Paris' confidence completely relies on the drugs in his system and -- in this case -- his firm belief that he can succeed in his mission if he can just stay high 24/7 and alive long enough to see it through. To aid in the endeavor, Paris enlists the help of Maya Gibbs, an African American prostitute versed not only in the language of the street, but also in the words of Maya Angelou and Nadine Gordimer. And together, the path of this dysfunctional duo crosses with those of the child's parents, a doctor with a penchant for soliciting "Street Boys", a self-ascribed King Of Porn, a drug supplier with a gift for making impeccable hors d'oeuvres, and a hardened cop with more scams than the most adept street hustler. ...

Peter Facinelli, aided by Simone Moore, looks for a missing little boy
6 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Arc" is a neo-noir and a darn good one at that. What about it stands out? A number of things. Facinelli inhabits his role as a drug addict, ex-cop, who has a dream of finding a missing little boy. Simone Moore is immensely attractive and engaging as girl who naively wants to make it big as a high-class call girl. There are several heavies, and they are realistic. The dialog is way, way above the usual. It's very intelligent. The parents of the missing boy come across genuine. We empathize with Facinelli and Moore in their quest, and in their unconventional actions that, nonetheless, are realistic. In fact, the whole movie is realistic. Although I can't explain every use that the director made of color, in a largely black and white film, I felt that he used the color scenes well, especially for certain direct and emotional confrontations at night. I felt that it added. I thought the characters went through arcs as the movie progressed that were plausible. The picture didn't seem concocted or phony.

Any negatives? Sure, every movie has negatives. I thought some scenes went on a bit too long. The movie was on the talky side at times. The sound was sometimes too low and/or the enunciation was below par -- but these are common faults these days.

This movie is on Netflix, so it should be getting the exposure it deserves. But it won't be for all tastes. I am a noir and neo noir fan, so that seedy and rundown locations and characters doing underhanded things are acceptable. This is not a Disney movie.
