The heart of Hollywood’s star-studded film industry for more than a century, Los Angeles and its abundant and ever-changing locales—from the Santa Monica Pier to the infamous and now-defunct Ambassador Hotel—have set the scene for a wide variety of cinematic treasures, from Chinatown to Forrest Gump, Falling Down to the coming-of-age classic Boyz n The Hood. This volume marks an engaging citywide tour of the many films shot on location in this birthplace of cinema and the screen spectacle. World Film Locations: Los Angeles pairs fifty incisive synopses of carefully chosen film scenes—both famous and lesser-known—with an accompanying array of evocative full-color film stills, demonstrating how motion pictures have contributed to the multifarious role of the city in our collective consciousness, as well as how key cinematic moments reveal aspects of its life and culture that are otherwise largely hidden from view. Insightful essays throughout turn the spotlight on the important directors, thematic elements, and historical periods that provide insight into Los Angeles and its vibrant cinematic culture. Rounding out this information are city maps with information on how to locate key features, as well as photographs showing featured locations as they appear now. A guided tour of the City of Angels conducted by the likes of Robert Altman, Nicholas Ray, Michael Mann, and Roman Polanski, World Film Locations: Los Angeles is moreover a concise and user-friendly guide to how Los Angeles has captured the imaginations of both filmmakers and those of us sitting transfixed in theatres worldwide.

Book Description Intellect Books, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. "World Film Locations: Los Angeles" is an engaging and highly visual city-wide tour of both well known and slightly lesser known films shot on location in one of the birthplaces of cinema and the 'screen spectacle'. It includes brief but concise reviews of 50 carefully chosen film scenes that explore how motion pictures have shaped the role of Los Angeles in our collective consciousness, as well as how these cinematic moments reveal aspects of the life and culture of a city that are often hidden from view. Complimenting these scenes from such varied films as "Chinatown", "Falling Down", "The Player" and "Boyz n' The Hood" are six spotlight essays that look at key directors, themes, and historical periods that help us to make sense of this vibrant yet disconnected city.Illustrated throughout with dynamic screen captures, stills of filming locations as they appear now and city maps that include location information, "World Film Locations: Los Angeles" is at once a guided tour of the 'city of angels' conducted by the likes of Robert Altman, Michael Mann, Nicholas Ray and Roman Polanski while also being an indispensible record of how Los Angeles has fired both the imaginations of individuals working behind the camera and those of us sitting transfixed in movie theatres.
