Under the influence of the black sun I shot the LA scenes with Tex. Dececco had the silent concepts and I managed to aquire expired 16 mm and Mike Stoltz is gold. Nastassia plays the French shadow. I know Agnes Varda had been around, and she's often on my mind anyway. Back in Washington I went for a ride out to the coast with David Harris and Alex in her Cadillac, some details I took from Melville, like the hat and overcoat against a cold background. The Camaro came back from Wyoming—my brother had suped it up—and my dad was running it around town, so we shot the two cars on a bridge over where the deal goes down."
