Los Angeles Plays Itself (2003)

US 169m, B&W/Colour
Director: Thom Andersen; Narrator: Encke King

Los Angeles Plays ItselfLos Angeles Plays Itself is Andersen’s video commentary of Hollywood’s portrayal of Los Angeles, and its influence on how the world sees the city that has become known as L.A. Consisting primarily of film clips, this is an academic critique which argues that Los Angeles has been overshadowed by the film industry, and that its depiction has created many false ideas of what his city is really about. Apart from the interesting critique, watching this will forever alter the way you look at not only Los Angeles, but any place which is depicted in film (Klaus Ming April 2016).
