City of Gold: documentary about the LA times food critic Jonathan Gold

Official trailer is now here:

Movie is out March 11th, 2016 for those who didn’t attend the film festivals this year.

aw, I was really hoping for an earlier release for this one.

I just watched this on Amazon and really enjoyed it. He’s quite a guy, and I loved hearing from a wide variety of his fans. You’ll be drooling by the end though!

I just caught up with this film when the library reopened here. It almost makes me want to move back to Los Angeles. When I lived there, in the '80s, the ethnic food scene was just beginning to become popular, and I loved finding hole-in-the-wall places in mini-malls (which also were beginning to proliferate). Fun quote:

“An aria is, in a way, equivalent to a well-cooked potato.”
