I saw Welcome to LA in 35mm over twenty years ago, so can't comment on how grainy or colourful it was. I did think it was a more interesting film than you seem to do, but then again I haven't seen it recently.

One I did see more recently was Rudolph's next film Remember My Name, which is now quite rare as it has never had a VHS or DVD release due to music rights issues. There are rumours that the negative may no longer exist and the print I saw (an ex UK distribution print) had faded - it looked distinctly pinkish in places. Certainly worth a look, especially for one of Geraldine Chaplin's best performances, but I sensed that Rudolph hadn't quite found his voice yet - and Choose Me was where he did.
