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.

"Katsottu: 10.2.2014, 2nd Watch, DVD Jännittävässä ja otteessan pitävässä poliisielokuvassa nuori ja rehellinen Edmound Exley (Guy Pearce) haistaa palaneen käryä Yökahvilassa tapahtuneesta massamurhasta. Muita elokuvan päähenkilöitä ovat kuumapäinen konstaapeli Bud White (Russell Crowe) ja julkisia pidätyksiä tekevä Jack Vincennes (Kevin Spacey). Kim Basinger (8 Mile), Danny DeVito (Twins) ja James Cromwell (Babe) nähdään sivuosissa. Ed Exley: "Shut up! A hooker cut to loo"

Portlander's Movie Log - January, 2014 (22 movies items)

" Watched - January 12th - Library DVD - 1st Viewing "Something has to be done, but nothing too original, because hey - this is Hollywood." - Sid Hudgens I had not seen L.A. Confidential before, but have heard frequently how it deserved the 1997 best picture Oscar over Titanic, as Titanic is the second highest grossing film of all time, as well as being one of my personal favorite movies, that set the bar very high, maybe unreasonably so, and to get the comparison out of the way at the outset"
