The New York Times
Los Angeles Plays Itself, in spite of its length, is rarely tedious, an achievement it owes mainly to the movies it prodigiously excerpts. Full Review
Frank Scheck
The Hollywood Reporter

Jack Mathews
New York Daily News

John McMurtrie
San Francisco Chronicle

Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
