1950’s Los Angeles is the seedy backdrop for this intricate noir-ish tale of police corruption and Hollywood sleaze. Three very different cops are all after the truth, each in their own style: Ed Exley, the golden boy of the police force, willing to do almost anything to get ahead, except sell out; Bud White, ready to break the rules to seek justice, but barely able to keep his raging violence under control; and Jack Vincennes, always looking for celebrity and a quick buck until his conscience drives him to join Exley and White down the one-way path to find the truth behind the dark world of L.A. crime.

Film Review

Ordinarily a "2-hour+" movie with an equally dense storyline would give me the shudders. But I have to admit that these folks manage to bring it off in riveting style, even though the many narrative threads don't merge until the end. To that point, I was keeping a scorecard to track the characters and plot, that is, unless somebody was taking a slug to the gut, which was pretty much every few minutes.I've got to admit that this movie may have the single most stunning moment that I've experienced in 60-odd years of movie watching. I don't know anything about director Hanson, but he manages that scene, plus the whole ball of wax, in really expert style, worthy of the best of the craft.What lingers for me is what the movie says about one of the most popular TV shows of the early 1950's. In those days, Jack Webb's Dragnet pretty much took audiences, myself included, by storm, as it portrayed police work in near documentary style. More importantly th…

This movie deserves perfect 10 if not for the non sense of two well educated and settled guys going after a loser woman who end up as a hooker (posing as some one else). At least it makes sense if he likes her after coming to know her, but it is not the case in the story. Add to it, at the end "I though I am helping you" — does she mean that she do not want him to worry about her org…s while he is busy solving the case? I really pity White character for settling with Lynn who is better of a hooker.This movie deserves perfect 10 if not for the non sense of two well educated and settled guys going after a loser woman who end up as a hooker (posing as some one else).

L.A. Confidential is a neo-noir film based on James Ellroy's novel of the same title, the third book in his L.A. Quartet. Both the book and the film tell the story of a group of LAPD officers in the year 1953, and the intersection of police corruption and Hollywood celebrity. The film adaptation was produced and directed by Curtis Hanson and co- written by Hanson and Brian Helgeland.At the time, actors Guy Pearce and Russell Crowe were relatively unknown in North America, and one of the film's backers, Peter Dennett, was worried about the lack of established stars in the lead roles. However, he supported Hanson's casting decisions and this gave the director the confidence to approach Kevin Spacey, Kim Basinger, and Danny DeVito.This award-winning crime drama explores both the dark side of the Los Angeles police force and Southern California's criminal underbelly in the early '50s, when Hollywood was still seen as America's capital of sophistication, glitt…
