We're not sure exactly what beautiful shots from around Los Angeles set to the lo-fi, fuzzy sounds of the Dum Dum Girls has to do with the new Kickstarter-funded, Bret Easton Ellis-penned movie "The Canyons."

But at the very least we're happy to see the side of the Los Angeles we know and love. We hope some of the shots, or at least that vibe, makes it to the big screen (right alongside the simulated sex scenes). There's Rodeo Drive and the Hollywood sign, sure, but there's also the gorgeous old vintage signs in Hollywood, movies theaters in Los Feliz and plenty of neon.

A lot of it appears to be shot during the "magic hour," including a shot of the Walt Disney Concert Hall which looks colorful instead of silver at that time. Frankly, we're suckers for this sort of thing—it looks a lot like the sorts of shots we're used to seeing in our Flickr photo pool. (h/t Curbed L.A. which calls the video "Dreamy Los Angeles porn.")
