John Landis

"The Blues Brothers," "Animal House" I grew up in L.A. so I used to go there all the time. I remember seeing a George Cukor retrospective there and I saw a David O. Selznick retro where they showed original nitrate prints. Seeing "King Kong" at LACMA was a life-changing experience for me. The truth is a film needs to be seen on the big screen with an audience. I find it depressing and shocking what the museum is doing and I don't think the current director gives a . . . about film. I'm militant about this. This is L.A. for chrissakes.Damon Winter / Los Angeles Times
