This film is absolutely incredible, as is all of Packard's work. It is an absolutely stunning work, where the "everything but the kitchen sink" approach not only works incredibly well (which is rare), but actually propels the film into a dimension rarely seen in cinema. I highly recommend it. One of the best films I've seen in years, and definitely in my top 5 from the past decade.
This is an amplified yet eerily accurate portrayal of life in Los Angeles. It runs slightly tedious at times but overall an entertaining picture.
It seemed like 2 films at first--plus the vintage broadcast tv, etc.
