How Does Los Angeles Fare on Film?

New, 18 comments

The Guardian takes a look at several world cities to see how they have been portrayed on film over the last few decades, Los Angeles among them. "Better, I think, to add to Chinatown other, gentler movies that work neighbourhood by neighbourhood, like the Coen brothers' The Big Lebowski (Hollywood, Malibu), Charles Burnett's Killer of Sheep (Watts), PT Anderson's Boogie Nights and Magnolia (San Fernando Valley), Towne's adaptation of John Fante's Ask the Dust (old, demolished Bunker Hill)."
