Had a chance to catch the new movie "Ask the Dust" this afternoon. It's written and directed by Robert Towne (who wrote "Chinatown") and stars Colin Farrell and Salma Hayek.
Set in downtown Los Angeles, Laguna Beach and Pearblossom during the Depression, it's about a writer who moves to Los Angeles to gain fame and fortune only to find himself with writer's block and a Mexican waitress he meets in a Bunker Hill cafe.
I like the film's version of Los Angeles in the 30s. Too bad the story doesn't really come together.
