Movie Info

Alan Rudolph's first feature Welcome to L.A. displays his characteristic mood of romantic despair utilizing a La Ronde-like circle of sexual adventures and failed affairs centered around song-writer Carroll Barber (Keith Carradine) which spread out through the city. Barber is an aloof womanizer who cannot commit or love and is used by Rudolph to illustrate the loneliness inherent in big-city life. The film, featuring a haunting score by Richard Baskin, is a bit too ambitious for the beginning director. However, he gets good performances from Sally Kellerman as a lonely real estate agent, Geraldine Chaplin, as a Valley housewife addicted to taxi rides and Lauren Hutton as the mistress of a wealthy man.

  • Nov 25, 2011
    sort of altman-lite, tho rudolph is a bit more of a romantic. this is altman's erstwhile assistant's debut feature, which seems like the continuing adventures of keith carradine's character in 'nashville'. he plays a writer of rather bad songs and son of a millionaire, who has a string of relationships with altman regulars sally kellerman, geraldine chaplin, sissy spacek, etc. even lauren hutton and harvey keitel are in this, harvey smoking a pipe and acting mostly uptight. some good performances and dialogues and structure similar to 'shortcuts', this was the first of a trilogy that ended with the far superior 'choose me'. rudolph seems to use distinctive music in each of his films, and the biggest problem here was the terrible folk-rock singer, richard baskin, whose performances throughout provide a running commentary on the characters' lonely lives. it was all i could do not to fast forward through these parts, but the film was interesting enough to finish
