TERMINAL BAR: the film

TERMINAL BAR: the film is a fantastic documentary shown on Sundance Channel (as well as a million other places. It describes the seediest bar in NYC, right across from Port Authority. It closed in 1982, and the bartender for 10 years took amazing photographs which make up the bulk of the imagery of the film, made by that man’s son. Clear? I hope so.

The link above includes a brief trailer (including stuff not in the film itself) and a link to a slideshow where you can see some of these photos – almost all portraits of the denizens of the place.

Terminal Bar: Porters, Bouncers, and Bartenders

Very nicely made, great use of still imagery to create a very compelling story. See it if you can.
