Reyner Banham Loves Los Angeles is a fascinating 1972 documentary about Los Angeles, in which architectural historian Reyner Banham is our guide. He argues that Los Angeles is a great city, praising both the city’s freeway network and its walkable nature. He says that “Los Angeles simply works” and “the building history of Los Angeles and London is very similar. The famous Georgian squares are the true prototype for Los Angeles.” Enjoy over fifty minutes of dubious L.A. celebration.
