LOS ANGELES PLAYS ITSELF
2003, 170 min, USA, Dir: Thom Andersen

In the Los Angeles Times, Kenneth Turan called LOS ANGELES PLAYS ITSELF “the best documentary ever made about Los Angeles.” Both Los Angeles history buffs and cinema enthusiasts will marvel at the hundreds of archival and film clips revealing an almost-secret history of the City of Angels. Thom Andersen's sardonic video essay about the tangled relationship between the movies and our metropolis was remastered and re-edited on its 10th anniversary; it's now funnier, sharper and bigger. A Cinematheque favorite!
