THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS released a short film called City of Angels that was directed by their front man, Jared Leto. The video features Alan Cumming, Ashley Olsen, Corey Feldman, James Franco <3, Juliette Lewis, Kanye West, Lily Collins, Lindsay Lohan, Olivia Wilde, Selena Gomez, Shaun White, and Steve Nash. Along with all of those celebrities, there are interviews with hopeful stars—in particular, Hollywood Blvd street performers. Each interview is heartfelt and everyone discusses how Los Angeles has made their dreams come true and for some, has shattered them.
I loved everything about this and not just because I live in LA. From the great group of people featured to how beautifully they captured the cityscape of Los Angeles, all the while weaving in their song, “City of Angels”, everything represented the city perfectly. I hope they consider making more of these and Jared should really continue directing. Whether you’re a fan of L.A. or not, this is a cool video to watch.
