Movie City | Los Angeles
Posted April 16, 2010 to photo album "Movie City | Los Angeles"
Los Angeles may be the entertainment capital of the world, but it’s also entertaining all by itself.
Los Angeles | City in the Movies
With so many films shot in Los Angeles, the city can’t help escape showing up in many of them. Often the city––its suburban streets, dry hills, urban center, sunny beaches, etc.––is just the backdrop to a story that could occur anywhere. But sometimes the city is a film’s focus. In our L.A. FiveInFocus, we asked the people who worked on Noah Baumbach’s Greenberg––including the director himself––to tell us which films about L.A. mean the most to them. The choices are as surprising as the town. While a city may be defined by its architectural spaces, natural landscape and cultural history, it can also be simmered down to a simple mood or feeling––an L.A. state of mind.
