Abstract:

A tongue-in-cheek tour of the city by architectural historian Reyner Banham includes stops at iconic landmarks such as Watts Towers and the Lovell "Health" House designed by Richard Neutra, as well as mini-malls, drive-thrus, and strip clubs. Documented is a city situated at the divide between the modern era's clean lines and faith in progress -- as captured in the work of architectural photographer Julius Shulman -- and what has been described as Banham's "Pop Art" view, with it sparkle-front houses, Tiki huts, and jarring juxtapositions. Also includes Anatomy of Los Angeles, a part of the French television series Point contrepoint, giving a critical and poetic portrait of Los Angeles, a sprawling city where the automobile is king and millions of individuals live together, but never meet. Interviews include students, a French chef, authors Henry Miller, and Norman Mailer.
