‘From a Marilyn Monroe look-alike 'flasher' touting her wares at the corner newsstand to Hollywood studio moguls and perennial audition hopefuls, this record of 1970s Los Angeles is vintage Americana. The characters and telling cruelties of street life and celebrity obsession hold endless fascination for Klein; as his observations are inter-cut with rehearsals for an amateur pop opera 'Hollywood', the world gets just a little bit stranger.’ (Australian Centre for the Moving Image)
