“Low tech, high concept” is how photographer Robert Trachtenberg (“The End of the Line,” p. 66) describes the movie magic of his photo shoot with the Criminal Minds cast: “We took a bunch of broken-down railroad cars in the Valley and made it look like a train station in Europe with just a little smoke and some camera angles.” Trachtenberg, seen here with his dog Jerome, has shot for The New York Times Maga zine, Esquire, Vanity Fair, and Rolling Stone, and he won an Emmy for Outstanding Directing for his American Masters documentary, Mel Brooks: Make a Noise. Los Angeles journalist Jeanne Dorin McDowell (“Location, Location, Location,” p. 100) was struck by the sheer number of obstacles the producers of Blood & Treasure had to navigate to deliver the global…

chemistry lessons

THERE’S ONLY ONE THING THAT showcases a great actor better than a wonderful role, and that’s playing the role opposite another great actor. Whether they’re portraying professional or personal partnerships, these actor pairings bring sizzle to our summer viewing. Jack Reynor and Rupert Friend, Strange Angel Sex and rocket science are the twin engines fueling the drama about real-life groundbreaking thinker Jack Parsons (Reynor), who lived in L.A. before and during World War II.
