“This city took my mother, but this city also gave me my child,”
The love and hate, ups and downs, woes and wins of being a resident of Los Angeles are documented in the 11 and a half minute long video production for Thirty Seconds to Mars latest musical feat, “City of Angels.” Centered around the flame to which draws every celebrity moth, LA is the backdrop, the star and the narrator all by way of star studded perspectives.
Included in the film Kanye West, Lindsay Lohan, Juliette Lewis, Olivia Wilde, James Franco, Ashley Olsen, celebrity impersonators of Marilyn Monroe, Superman and Michael Jackson, Lily Collins, Selena Gomez, Shaun White, TSTM frontman Jared Leto and Corey Feldman.
I’m not quite sure how, but over the course of the Bartholomew Cubbins-directed semi-documentary, you feel filled with both melancholy and happiness. It’s an odd filling I encourage you to experience.
