A fitting tribute to ‘Chinatown’ — and LA
Feb 13, 2024•
Thank you for the fabulous and thoughtful piece from Joseph Joyce in the Feb. 9 issue (“The Perfect LA film?”) about the legacy — and continued relevance — of “Chinatown,” one of the greatest movies of all time.
We associate Jack Nicholson so closely with sitting courtside at the Forum (and, er, Crypto or whatever) that we sometimes forget what a brilliant young actor he was. I’m not sure I agree with all of Joyce’s observations about Southern California and its denizens, but all in all, not bad for someone who relocated from the Great Northwest only three years ago.
We take a little while here to understand, especially the push and pull of our relationships with our vehicles and the roads upon which they travel.
