i'm from new orleans and a childhood friend of mine actually produced this movie. unfortunately i'm not sure they entirely stuck the landing on this documentary. closed for the storm plays out like an oral history of Jazzland - the who, what, when, where, why - of how this notorious them park came to rise and fall. and perhaps what it could be in the future. it rolls along a fairly rote pace, with standard talking heads, heavy reliance of archival and drone footage, and a tawdry story structure, serving mainly as a visual wikipedia article.
BUT i think in steadier, more creative hands (*gasp* not a YouTuber), there could've been interesting film here about what it means for society to abandon a landmark, the nature of corporate failure and its effects on the individual, and just a generally more explorative, boots on the ground, visual journey through the theme park.
