Low Life, EP style*

While Griffith Park was smoldering, less than a mile from the Los Feliz movie theaters on Wednesday night, the hardscape of Joe D'Augustine's terrific thriller One Night With You was cool relief: the only thing to go up in smoke was cash. There's barely a tree in the feature film, because the characters in One Night are the kinds of people who pass the time in hard-urban areas where trees don't get a lot of love. The only time I can remember D'Augustine's down-and-outers keeping company with trees is at night (of course) in a scene with the Lady of the Lake statue at Echo Park Lake. And I'll add that they weren't there willingly.
