Los Angeles Plays Itself DVD (2 Disc Documentary) 2003
Of the cities in the world, few are depicted in and mythologized more in
film and television than the city of Los Angeles. In this documentary,
Thom Andersen examines in detail the ways the city has been depicted,
both when it is meant to be anonymous and when itself is the focus.
Along the way, he illustrates his concerns of how the real city and its
people are misrepresented and distorted through the prism of popular
film culture. Furthermore, he also chronicles the real stories of the
city's modern history behind the notorious accounts of the great
conspiracies that ravaged his city that reveal a more open and yet
darker past than the casual viewer would suspect.
