Storyline

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. ...

About average
23 March 2009 | by chironaphelionSee all my reviews

A film about a young ex-cop and now drug abuser and dealer, Paris Pritchert (Peter Facinelli), washed up just shy of 30, working for his dead father's partner, a hardened, corrupt cop. His fixation about finding a kidnapped boy becomes a reality through happenstance of an unexpected "vacation." Along with Maya Gibbs (Raina-Simone Moore), a prostitute just getting into the game, the story degenerates into a slow pursuit filled with a combination of violence, pornography, and depravity that ends with the inevitable conclusion of the path of self-destruction that is Paris's life.

Full of affectation and the embodiment of conceit, not surprising of a first film, especially considering that Gunnerson was the writer, director, editor, and composer. The last is the most amusing, and perhaps intended, as the soundtrack could pass for that of a 1980's porno. It is questionable that this film would even have been released without the success of Peter Facinelli's subsequent effort in Twilight.

There seems to be gratuitous camera and visual effect (Gunnerson is co-credited on this). Although I liked the stills in fast rewind at the start of the film, the other odd interjections seem to add nothing to the feel of the film. Most of this film is in black and white and yet it is interspersed with bits of color and sometimes, briefly, in full color and the meaning of the color is unclear.

All that said, this film isn't all that bad and Peter Facinelli acted well, but the film in total is more average than good or bad.
