Larry Karaszewski on

Welcome to L.A.

Released 1976
Distributor United Artists

In 1976 Robert Altman’s unofficial protégé Alan Rudolph directed this knowing dissection of Angelenos with an appropriately Altmanesque cast including Keith Carradine (in a near reprisal of his womanizing turn in Nashville), Sally Kellerman and Sissy Spacek (whose break-out role as Carrie was the same year). Rudolph, having punctuated his long and admirable directing career with a series of artful films, is also a painter, mounting several successful exhibits of his work over the last few years.
