This very dark comedy is an audacious failure. Some of its movie references are clever, Ron Perlman has a blast with his role as a mock serial killer and Joe Pantoliano is extremely well-cast as a sleazy, penniless "producer". But when all is said and done, it's hard to determine why exactly the picture was made or what it was trying to say (apart, of course, from the obvious "filmmakers are willing to sell their souls for a box-office hit", which we knew already). Still, "Tinseltown" IS recommended to fans of the offbeat; the last 10 minutes in particular come as quite a surprising change of tone.

By 1920, 40 million Americans were going to the movies each week. As the industry blossomed, Hollywood strove to keep pace physically. L.A. history buffs (and fans of the movie Chinatown) know the key to the area’s explosive development during the early 20th century was the Owens Valley Aqueduct System, spearheaded by William Mulholland (who was the head engineer of the Municipal Water Department) and initially completed in 1913.

Still, the water flowed (usually), and Hollywood flourished. During the 20s, a whimsical skyline of movie set-inspired hotels and apartments rose along the big boulevards. The more prestigious addresses, including the opulent Garden Court Apartments, Chateau Elysee and Garden of Allah Villas, were imbued with the glamour of the stars that called them home.
