L.A. Times Pick the Top 25 Films about L.A. in the Past 25 Years



Movies about New York City made me want to live there. Movies about L.A. made me never want to go there.

So I move to L.A.

After quickly getting acquainted with the City of Angeles, I began to shovel in movies about it. Each one seemed like a love letter to the city. Sometimes a sweet and nostaligic love letter, sometimes a fucked up, hateful one about a love affair gone wrong.

And it's the fucked up ones that make me proud to live in this city. The even better ones make downtown look romantic (oh, how I was deceived!)

1.) L.A. CONFIDENTIAL
2.) BOOGIE NIGHTS
3.) JACKIE BROWN
4.) BOYZ N THE HOOD
5.) BEVERLY HILLS COP
6.) THE PLAYER
7.) CLUELESS
8.) REPO MAN
9.) COLLATERAL
10.) THE BIG LEBOWSKI
11.) MULHOLLAND DRIVE
12.) WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT
13. ) TRAINING DAY
14.) SWINGERS
15.) DEVIL IN A BLUE DRESS
16.) FRIDAY
17.) SPEED
18.) VALLEY GIRL
19.) TO LIVE AND DIE IN L.A.
20.) L.A. STORY
21.) TO SLEEP WITH ANGER
22.) LESS THAN ZERO
23.) FLETCH
24.) MI VIDA LOCA
25.) CRASH

I'm happy to see that MAGNOLIA and GRAND CANYON weren't on there, but surprised that PULP FICTION and SHORT CUTS didn't make the list. L.A. STORY should have been closer to the top.
