‘Los Angeles Plays’ New York

'Los Angeles Plays' New York

Thom Andersen’s epic and fantastic 2003 documentary, Los Angeles Plays Itself, is screening in New York this weekend as part of a series at the 92Y Tribeca called “Not Coming to a Theater Near You.” This beloved doc – a portrait of how Los Angeles has been portrayed in cinematic history – will probably never come to any commercial release near anyone. The reason: clip licensing, since the entire film is a montage of various film segments. Which is too bad, because it’s a great viewing experience for fans of film, Los Angeles, or American history. Take this opportunity, on Saturday night, to see the film while you can.
