First impressions on this is a bunch of blather.
For a good look at urban desolation visit One Big Torrent for Thom Andersen's masterpiece "Los Angeles Plays Itself." Torrents is the only way that this film can or will be seen except, as noted in some texts, if you attend Andersen's classroom lectures.
Made in 2003 "LA Plays Itself" has been submitted to torrents.
another location for LA Plays Itself
this is a trusted source.
Additionally there is a new film restoration of "The Exiles" about native populations in Los Angeles in the mid 1950's. The restoration package is outstanding and can be seen here:
If there is interest "The Exiles" can be made available here on OBT. But if you can purchase the dvd package, encourage your libraries to do so as mine has done.

Thank you for bringing this lecture to my attention! I love, and in fact collect, talks by Loic Wacquant. I investigated further, and found a vimeo video of this talk at http://www.vimeo.com/12388301

Thanks for the heads up! Didn't know about the video, gonna listen to it fully when I have time. Just a note, the speech in the video seems to be roughly the same as the audio I uploaded, but it's rather from the "seminar" that Wacquant held in connection to his speech. Just to let anyone interested know =)
