Feature - Mike Carreiro

I recently saw Tom Ford of Gucci fame's directorial debut set in 1962 Los Angeles, A Single Man. Twice. Colin Firth gives an amazing performance, for which he received an Oscar nod. While a friend of mine said it resembled a 2-hour long perfume ad (the trailer certainly does), I thought it absolutely beautiful and reminiscent of the feel of Gattaca, which I also loved back in the day.

Mike Carreiro's version of LA feels to me like still shots from A Single Man - a dreamy, muted-toned version of our city that I can fall into. They could have been shot in the 60's but have a hint of today.
