Coming Soon: The LA Movie Project

Inspired by a recent trip to Los Angeles (and the fact that I work for that city’s leading newspaper), I’m going to take a stab at listing some of my favorite films set in the City of Angels–along with a few that I haven’t yet had the opportunity to see.

LA is arguably America’s largest and most diverse canvas upon which a story can be drawn. So, it’s no surprise that’s it’s given us noir toughguys, cheeky detectives, porn-industry potboilers, absurdist comedies, and urban melodramas. Over the next few weeks, I’m hoping to count down 30 quintessential LA movies, film that have something to say about this region of sun-splashed starlets and dark souls.

We’ll do it in pure Casey Kasem-style, another son of Southern California.
