Los Angeles Stories

  • Brad Pitt Fury: Readers Respond

    A New Supervisor in Town Hillel Aron's story on the race to replace L.A. County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky filled our mailbags last week ("Is Sheila Kuehl or Bobby Shriver Less Bad at Handling $26 Billion?" Oct. 17). Writes Mitch Lippman, "Since when does L.A. Weekly make the L.A. Chamber of...
  • The Overnighters Is About a North Dakota Town Where the Rent is Higher Than in L.A.

    Quick, name the most expensive housing market in America. If you said New York, Los Angeles or San Francisco, you couldn't be further from the truth — literally. Each is more than 1,500 miles away from Williston, North Dakota, a monochrome town you can drive end to end in 15...
  • Nightcrawler's Jake Gyllenhaal Aces His Role as a Media Monster

    Jake Gyllenhaal, not a particularly bulky guy to begin with, dropped 20 pounds or so to play a Los Angeles misfit who finds his calling as a freelance crime videographer in Dan Gilroy's nervy thriller Nightcrawler. Even when Robert De Niro does it, weight change isn't acting — it's the...
  • In Horns, Daniel Radcliffe Might Be Satan

    Alexandre Aja's Horns is the rare YA-ish romance that doesn't make like a guidance counselor and force the characters to shake hands and forgive. It's a biblically tinged, eye-for-an-eye vengeance thriller about an emo boyfriend named Ig (Daniel Radcliffe) whose childhood sweetheart Merrin (Juno Temple) has been murdered underneath the...
  • Interstellar May Be Grand, But It Doesn't Connect

    There’s so much space in Christopher Nolan’s nearly three-hour intergalactic extravaganza Interstellar that there’s almost no room for people. This is a gigantosaurus movie entertainment, set partly in outer space and partly in a futuristic dustbowl America where humans are in danger of dying out, and Nolan -- who co-wrote...
  • The Death of Harry Major: Readers Respond

    A Teacher's Secret Life Hillel Aron's look at the life and death of Harry Major, a Hollywood High teacher with a penchant for taking in ex-cons, had readers riveted last week ("The Pen Pal Murder," Oct. 17). Anon can't wait for the movie version, saying, "Great story and writing. Write...
  • Gyllenhaal Says Nightcrawler Is "So Fucked Up"

    Jake Gyllenhaal is used to exhaustion. During his research for the LAPD drama End of Watch, he spent five months patrolling the streets with real-life police officers, on shifts that ended at 7 a.m. It was good preparation for his new movie, Nightcrawler, a blistering portrait of a morally corrupt...
  • Citizenfour Is a Fascinating, Flawed Snowden Doc 2

    Director Laura Poitras' Citizenfour boasts an hour or so of tense, intimate, world-shaking footage you might not quite believe you're watching. Poitras shows us history as it happens, scenes of such intimate momentousness that the movie's a must-see even if, in its totality, it's underwhelming as argument or cinema. Here...
