Jonathan Gold, Quincy Jones, and Paul Reubens are Los Angeles Film Festival’s 2010 Artists in Residence.


hollywoodnews.com: Each Artist will program a film in the Festival that has inspired his work, and then stick around for a conversation with the audience!

Jonathan Gold: A conversation about food and film.
Film Selection: Udon (2006, Japan)
Directed by Katsuyuki Motohiro

Udon is a high-spirited comic ode to the power of Japan’s ubiquitous noodle. After failing to make it as a stand-up comedian, a young man drags himself home to Kagawa Prefecture, where his father owns a small udon factory. When an article he writes for a local magazine sets off a nationwide udon craze, he learns there’s more to the simple noodle, and the people who make them, than he ever expected.

Jonathan Gold is the Pulitzer Prize-winning restaurant critic for LA Weekly and author of Counter Intelligence: Where to Eat in the Real Los Angeles.


Quincy Jones: A conversation about music and film.
Film Selection: The Color Purple (1985)
Directed by Steven Spielberg

“It is a great, warm, hard, unforgiving, triumphant movie, and there is not a scene that does not shine with the love of the people who made it,” wrote Roger Ebert of Steven Spielberg’s The Color Purple. Twenty-five years later, Spielberg’ luminous adaptation of Alice Walker’s beloved novel stands as a landmark moment in the careers of its extraordinary cast. It introduced to the big screen both Whoopi Goldberg and Oprah Winfrey, and sent Danny Glover’s career into orbit. And its wonderful score, of course, was the work of the incomparable Quincy Jones.

Quincy Jones is a legendary music composer and producer.


Paul Reubens: A conversation about classics and comedy.
Film Selection: You Can’t Take It With You (1938)
Directed by Frank Capra

You Can’t Take It With You, Frank Capra’s Best Picture-winning screwball comedy, stars James Stewart, in his first collaboration with Capra, and the incomparable Jean Arthur as two young people in love whose families could not be more different. His are well-heeled, high society types; hers are a collection of artists and eccentrics. True love—as well as harmonicas, fireworks, and back taxes—brings everyone together in one of Capra’s most manic, marvelous films.

Paul Reubens is an actor and comedian known for his work on stage, television, and screen and as the celebrated icon Pee-wee Herman.

* There will also be a special 25th anniversary family screening of Pee-wee’s Big Adventure on June 26th at the Orpheum Theatre.
