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.
Tacos Arizas, Sunset and Logan
The taco truck is Tacos Arizas. I go there –– and it’s tasty and delicious. I wanted to show a slightly grittier side to LA, but still totally romantic. This isn’t one of those Grade A restaurant trucks; this is more like a real street truck. I thought, that would be a great date –– him showing her a part of LA that is very real. She’s French and an actress. It was a way to test her –– can she deal with this? And she loves it. And so I thought, “oh, how romantic.”
