Ok cinephiles, who’s seen Los Angeles Plays Itself? If you haven’t, do yourself a favor and give it a look. Director Thom Andersen put together and intriguing documentary of how Los Angeles is depicted in film. And, as a treat for architecture lovers, there’s a whole section on modernist houses. Homes by John Lautner, Richard Neutra, Pierre Koenig and Frank Lloyd Wright are prominently featured in the film. Anderson humorously points out that these homes are often the residences of the movie’s villain. According to Hollywood filmmakers, I guess we are to believe that gangsters, pimps, pornographers and drug dealers all love masterful architecture.

It used to be only available to watch at film festivals or private screenings. But, thankfully with a click of a button, you can rent or buy it.
