  3. Great then & now shots...who knew that Trejo and Kelso were practically next door neighbors on the same hill! One location missing though- the house where Neil kills Van Zant

  4. I think I have the location for the shot where Neil and Eady look out over the cliff face next to the tree if you are interested.

  5. Great blog, I have bookmarked this for future reference! What happened to the Deli, it is just lying disused? Also, a general question, if an interior location is now vastly different now compared to what it looked like for a film, how do you choose the camera angle from which to take a picture?

    1. When I visited the deli location it was currently vacant. I take the screen shot camera angle regardless if it looks different or the same as it did during filming. That's part of the fun, seeing how much it has or has not changed over time.

  6. Where is Neil's sparsely-adorned condo/apartment? He is looking out through floor to ceiling glass window at the Pacific Ocean, so I imagine it would be somewhere near the coast. Malibu? Santa Monica? The original script mentions Neil driving up to his apartment along Wilshire Blvd. But Wilshire is a long boulevard and his house could be anywhere along it. The scene of Neil gazing out over the pre-dawn ocean is so powerful.

    Thanks!

    1. I've been searching for Neil's condo for sometime and I'm pretty sure it's one of the ocean front properties between Palisades Park and Santa Monica St. Beach. But I agree 100% that the scene of Neil gazing out his window at the ocean is one of the most beautiful shots I've ever seen in any film; it just says so much.

  9. Neil's beach house could be 24826 Malibu rd, rd. This was featured in sex and the city movie. It looks like the same balcony from heat, and location looks right

  10. Neil McCauley's apartment is located at 26940 Malibu Cove Colony Dr.

    This is a link to the apartment, which shows that the kitchen has remained the same since 1994/95: http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/26940-Malibu-Cove-Colony-Dr-Malibu-CA-90265/20554901_zpid/

    1. You're right, it's a dead on match. The shorter portion of the balcony has been redone but everything else looks almost unchanged. Marvelous find!
