Heinz Emigholz, the premier purveyor of architectural oddities, offers a stunning portrait of urban Los Angeles through the houses of Austrian-American architect Rudolph Schindler. Using no voice over, historical photos, or other conventions of standard documentaries, the film presents beautifully composed shots of 40 of Schindler's houses in the order in which they were built. Emigholz's style is formal and subtle, but the cumulative effect is a provocative meditation on Schindler's ideas regarding architecture vs. environment. Part of Emigholz's "Photography and Beyond" series, this film is another example of his obsession with architecture as autobiography.
