Los Angeles Plays Itself @ The Egyptian
This phenomenal documentary isn't available on DVD, so if you are a fan of Los Angeles, and taking a look at its psyche and image through film, go, go, go, go to The Egyptian tonight at 7:30 p.m. to catch this screening. Director Thom Andersen has assembled an epic quantity and sampling of movie clips, plus wry narration, to look at the city in a whole new way. Be warned--it runs 169 minutes...but it's so worth it! And: Don't forget there's going to be major street closures in the area due to the Hollywood Christmas Parade, so scout an alternate route, or take the Metro; the Theatre suggests approaching from the South. ($10)
