Los Angeles for Beginners
Posted June 01, 2011 to photo album "Los Angeles for Beginners"
Beginners not only writes a poignant postcard to contemporary Los Angeles, but maps out a personal landscape for writer/director Mike Mills.
Cosmopolitan Book Shop, 7017 Melrose Ave
and Counterpoint Records & Books, 5911 Franklin Ave.
We shot in two really amazing bookstores. One is Counterpoint Records & Books on Franklin, and one is Cosmopolitan Books on Melrose and La Brea. Cosmopolitan is like this towering mess. So we went in there and didn’t touch it. And the guy who owns the books store is in the film. I love that. Counterpoint is gorgeous and a little more organized –– great place to get old vinyl there and used books. I go to these places all the time so it was fun to shoot in them.
