Los Angeles Plays Itself
Dir. Thom Anderson. 2003, 169 mins. Digital projection. Remastered version. Thom Anderson’s cinematic essay film uses a myriad of film clips to look at the different ways that Los Angeles is depicted in such varied movies as Kiss Me Deadly, To Live and Die in L.A., Killer of Sheep, and many more, raising fascinating questions about architecture, fantasy, and the difference between movies and reality.
