  • Combining monologue and constructed narrative, the Yonemotos highlight L.A. s obsession with the automobile. Spalding Gray recounts key events in his life - from his teenage desire to race with Ferraris to his mother's suicide by asphyxiation in the family Cadillac. This is interwoven with vignettes focused on Gray s return to L.A. as a successful artist. A humuorous portrait of a city and people dominated by freeways and turnpikes.
