“Los Angeles” continues Morris’ investigation into the psychology, architecture and aesthetic of the American city. It reveals a new cityscape of Los Angeles by tracking its de-centered plan, its complex architecture, and most importantly its crucial role as a center of image production.

"Los Angeles" is, in part, a film about contemporary commercial filmmaking, following the production and direction of a movie in an abstract sense – as well as the relations between the studio, producer, director and talent. It also tracks various pre and post-production processes thus creating a sweeping non-narrated image of the mechanisms of filmmaking and how they relate to the identity of a place.
