Los Angeles Plays Itself Blu-ray


The Cinema Guild has officially announced and detailed its upcoming Blu-ray release of the never before available, landmark documentary Los Angeles Plays Itself from Thom Andersen. The release will be available for purchase on October 14th.

Official synopsis: Never before available on home video, Thom Andersen's landmark documentary Los Angeles Plays Itself explores the tangled relationship between the movies and their fabled hometown as seen entirely though the films themselves.

From its distinctive neighborhoods to its architectural homes, Los Angeles has been the backdrop to countless movies. In this dazzling work, Andersen takes viewers on a whirlwind tour through the metropolis' real and cinematic history, investigating the myriad stories and legends that have come to define it, and meticulously, judiciously revealing the real city that lives beneath. Newly remastered and finally available to own, Los Angeles Plays Itself is an extraordinary documentary, unlike any that has come before or since.

Special Features:

The Tony Longo Trilogy (2014, 14 minutes) a short film by Thom Andersen
Theatrical Trailer
Collectible booklet featuring essays by Mike Davis, author of "City of Quartz: Excavating the Future of Los Angeles" and Thom Andersen

Can't wait. Very impressed that they also got Mike Davis to participate in the form of an essay in the booklet.
