Los Angeles Plays Itself
Thom Andersen

The Island Club, in collaboration with the Lemesos International Documentary Festival, presents Los Angeles Plays Itself by Thom Andersen (2003).

Employing footage from approximately two hundred films alongside an idiosyncratic and inspired commentary, Los Angeles Plays Itself examines how Hollywood simultaneously invented and distorted the image of the city of Los Angeles—a unique video essay which has been described as the best movie about movies ever made.
