L.A. Confidential is tough gorgeous and vastly entertaining (Janet Maslin, The New York Times), a genuine masterpiece that will knock your socks off (Rex Reed) and won 1997 Academy Awards for best supporting Actress (Kim Basinger) and Best Adapted Screenplay (Brian Helgeland & Curtis Hanson). Director Curtis Hanson and a terrific cast serve up a ravishing, thrilling tale of police corruption and Hollywood glamour (Marshall Fine,Gannett Newspaper) in this film version of James Ellroy’s novel.

Three cops (Kevin Spacey, Russell Crowe, Guy Pearce), a call girl (Kim Basinger), a mysterious millionaire (David Strathairn), a tabloid journalist (Danny DeVito), and the Chief of Detectives (James Cromwell) fuel a labyrinthine plot rife with mystery, ambition, romance and humor.
