Los Angeles Times says... Morgan Neville and Harry Pallenberg's irreverent, insightful 'Shotgun Freeway' is surely one of the most ambitious documentaries on Los Angeles ever attempted..... - Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
Hollywood Reporter thinks..... "A breezy, informative look at Los Angeles history and culture... the films angle and talkative, analytical interviewees stitch together a thought provoking portrait of a teaming metropolis unlike any other." - David Hunter, Hollywood Reporter
Before "L.A. Confidential", there was "Shotgun Freeway"-- the groundbreaking 1996 documentary about Los Angeles coming to grips with it's own history. Against a backdrop of never-before-seen archive footage on the L.A., Shotgun Freeway presents a diverse group of "Angelinos" who guide the film through their own past as well as the city's. We get crime scribe James Ellroy reliving his youth as a burglar, Actor/writer Buck Henry's tour of Hollywood fakery, Jazzman Buddy Collette's trip down Central Avenue, Historian Mike Davis' tour of LA's eventual Armageddon, and writer Joan Didion's take on LA's own ephemerality. From the Beaches to the Valley, "Shotgun Freeway" will show you a Los Angeles you never knew existed.
Directed by Morgan Neville & Harry Pallenberg
BONUS MATERIALS include Director's Commentary, The Lost Tim Leary Interview, and
three rare promotional films: Hollywood 1931, LA Police Tour, The Free Way.
