Still from Thom Andersen’s film “The Tony Longo Trilogy” (2014)

LOS ANGELES — “Who is Tony Longo?” my editor inquired, after I pitched her on this piece about Thom Andersen’s new short film “The Tony Longo Trilogy” (2014). It makes sense that Andersen, the director of Los Angeles Plays Itself (2003), which discusses how the city is portrayed on film, would fixate on a specific character type or actor, in this […]
