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.

Wrecker's Movie Diary - 2012 (204 movies items)

"Watched: - 5.8.2012 - Digibox Ehdottoman tyylikäs ja komea neo-noir-draama. Juoni elokuvan pohjalla ei ole vaudikkaimmasta päästä, mutta taitava käsikirjoitus, loistavat näyttelijät ja elokuvan miellyttävä rytmitys ovat avainosassa, mitä tulee mielenkiinnon ylläpitämiseen. L.A. Confidential kuuluu kategoriaan, jonka leffat usein kaatuvat ylipituuteen ja mielenkiintoisuutensa menettämiseen, mutta Curtis Hanson ysärimestaripala on poikkeus - ja ennenkaikkea upea elokuva.
