LA Film Festival: Alex Ben Block Recommends

Hollywood Today’s Alex Ben Block confesses his interests at the LA Film Festival.

I haven’t seen anything, but a couple interest me. Among the movies, The Hottest State, written and directed by Ethan Hawke; and The Beautiful Ordinary, directed by Jess Manafort, about suburban teens.

And among the documentaries, I am personally looking forward to The Man Who Shot Chinatown: The Life and Work of John A. Alonzo. Alonzo is one of the great cinematograhy artists (with credits that also include Scarface and Harold and Maude).
