Monte Hellman, Los Angeles 1998
A portrait I did of cult film director Monte Hellman taken at his home in the Hollywood hills in 1998. George Hickenlooper, my childhood friend and ace film director, introduced us while he was making Monte Hellman: American Auteur, a short documentary on the director. Hellman's cult classic Two-Lane Blacktop (Criterion) remains one of my favorite films of all time.
