Los Angeles Plays Itself (2003). At 169 minutes,this is an epic meditation on the role of Los Angeles (“the most photographed city in the world”) in the movies and the impact of the movie industry upon its own capital city -- as well as a fascinating deconstruction of both movie-making and movie-going. Ever think about why Los Angeles’s modern architectural classics (by Neutra and Frank Lloyd Wright) are favored housing for villains? It’s a movie for anyone who loves (or hates) Los Angeles. Chosen by Tom Keeley by invitation from the Set Collective, on the occasion of The Everyday Experience curated by the Irish Architecture Foundation.
