Mayor of the Sunset Strip

Chris Campion, Tartan Films, 2003

MORE THAN JUST a nostalgic character study, George Hickenlooper's Mayor Of Sunset Strip is an artfully-constructed meditation on fame that scratches at the surface world of celebrity. At its centre is perennial Los Angeles scenester and radio DJ Rodney Bingenheimer, self-proclaimed "designated driver" between the worlds of the famous and the not-so-famous.
