one of the best movies i saw in 2009, and to date the best L.A. movie i’ve ever seen—better than chinatown, better than kiss me deadly (filmed also on bunker hill a few years earlier in 1955), better than blade runner, better than rebel without a cause (filmed in 1955). kent mckenzie made it 1958 – 1960 and charles burnett helped rescue it. check out this scene where the principals roar thru the third street tunnel and emerge downtown—
