Los Angeles Plays Itself – 3/5
Does a city lose its soul when it’s used as surrogate for hundreds of other cities? Can a city’s character survive tourist directors who think they can define the city better than those who live there? Does Los Angeles have an identity? It takes a shitload of time and one of the least arresting voiceovers imaginable to answer the question you’ve never asked, but boy howdy does it make its point.
