The New York Times reviews Model Shop, the 1969 film by French Director Jacques Demy about draft notice-awaiter George and pinup model Lola, just out on DVD. Demy's only LA-set film loves the city: "The only obvious thing binding George and Lola is their shared affection for Los Angeles, a city that George, an aspiring architect, praises as 'pure poetry.' It’s an enthusiasm that Demy shares, offering extended shots of his characters motoring down wide, sun-blasted streets, accompanied by snatches of Bach, Schumann and Rimsky-Korsakov."
