Imagine five minutes of HD surveillance footage of matchstick pines being cut down in a fog- bound forest and you've established the languid pace for "Coast of Death." The film comprises many such protracted shots of not much going on. Some of the photography is artful; most is not. There is no narration to tell one what one is seeing but some scenes are accompanied by conversational dialog, seemingly recorded at a distance from the subjects in the scene, which says nothing of any substance. This visual montage of Galicia, the northwest corner of Spain, reminded me a bit of a narration-free Joseph Losey flick I saw years ago called "Figures in a Landscape," but that one at least had a Kafkaesque pot tying it together. Not to put too fine a point on it, "Coast..." has none.

Although it is obviously intended to be an homage to the Galician coast, even Gallego nationalists would probably find it tedious. There is some pretty interesting footage, if one only knew where it was and why it was included.

At its showing in the 2014 Palm Springs International Film Festival, probably 10% of the audience walked before it was even half over.
