Los Angeles Plays Itself 1:30?4:30 pm
Thom Andersen?s acclaimed documentary (169 min., 2003) pays tribute to Los Angeles and how it has been historically represented on film?whether as a different city altogether, a vision of an apocalyptic future, or a nostalgic landscape of the past. Employing hundreds of film clips, and with a strong sense of humor, Los Angeles Plays Itself shows how a very real Los Angeles can still be glimpsed through the haze of Hollywood?s imaginings. Not Rated
