Have you seen the documentary LA Plays Itself? It's a meditation on the idea of Los Angeles the place as it is told through 20th Century movies. It is fantastic, well worth the hassle of finding through bit torrents. Killer of Sheep shows up there.

I haven't--I remember checking for it on Netflix, but seeing that they did not have it. I will try to track it down.
