The best detective drama ever made

Suspenseful and twisted detective drama movie set in 1960s Los Angeles. I am a big fan of detective movies and this is *the* best movie in this genre. A stellar cast (two of whom - Kevin Spacey and Russell Crowe - would win Best Actor Oscars later in the decade), brilliant direction coupled with outstanding set and costume design make this one the best movies ever made. It got swept aside at the O... read more

L.A. Confidential most likely falls into the category of one of the best movies of the past twenty years. The complex story line seemed to burst at the seams with intelligence. I found the complexity of several different sub-plots working together challenged the intellectual part of my brain while the intense action through out the entire movie satisfied the craving of the not-so-intellectual part... read more

What you get with L.A. Confidential is a classic noir with all the modern trappings (though one could argue that by this point, the film itself is a classic as well). Supported by one of the best and most reverential screenplays, the amazing cast delivers a noir film that is both classic and contemporary at the same time. This is a movie that both deconstructs what it means to be a noir film and i... read more

"24.04. Blu-ray, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Curtis Hanson Entertaining film with classy direction and cinematography and a great ensemble cast. A charming film noir throwback with its convoluted plot, hard-boiled dialogue and sense of paranoia. Somewhat unintentionally hilarious here and there, though - especially as Russell Crowe beats up almost every character in the film. "

"Rewatch I've watched L.A Confidential countless times and it's still fantastic, without a doubt one of the best movies from the Nineties. James Ellroy is goddamn genius and this is the best adaption of his work up to this day, his Hardboiled noir vision seething with masculinity, corruption, seediness and satirical swipes, exploring the rancid underbelly of the glamour of fifties Los Angeles. 9/10 "

" As corruption grows in 1950s LA, three policemen - the straight-laced, the brutal, and the sleazy - investigate a series of murders with their own brand of justice. directed by Curtis Hanson The movie itself raises some questions, about good/bad and all this stuff. Bud is probably one of the most interesting character I've ever seen, as well as Exley who's a great one too. The story wasn't that entertaining, I was highly bored through most of the movie, it started to be thrilling close to th"
