Storyline: 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.

The City of Angels has never felt so stylish
L.A Confidential is not only a superb achievement in filmmaking, it is a lesson on taking a fresh approach at a genre that could use a revival in contemporary narrative.

This production tackles corruption, loyalty and treason in an elegant, yet aggressive and sophisticated manner; at times, it would seem to exhibit the essence of a Scorsese film (minus the profanity), and that can only be a good trait. There are many themes approached in this film, making it an appropriate choice for a very wide audience as it navigates through the world of the Los Angeles Police Department and the quirks of its members and some outsiders.

The story is enthralling and developed diligently throughout the events from which it unfolds. The characters are all rather captivating and all act upon strong motivations. They are forced to be true to their nature at some points in the story, and to be someone else at others, which ultimately results in rich and complex characterizations. Acting is sensational from practically every corner, especially from the leads Spacey, Crowe and Pearce.

The cinematography is just gorgeous, reflecting the beauty and the beast of L.A. The editing and the pace are quite polished and the dialogue feels very natural, which only compliments an already excellent cast and a direction worthy of nothing but praise.

L.A. Confidential offers something for almost everyone, yet it offers everything for fans of the genre, and it does not disappoint in anything it attempts.
Kim Basinger was really sexy!
SPOILER ALERT This film was so interesting that I couldn't stop watching it even though it was past 2 in the mid night. I had never imagined that Kevin Spacy would be killed. The film was series of unexpected scenes. What was the most impressed for me was, of course the story was amazingly good, but how Kim Basinger was beautiful, attractive, and sexy. Was she really 43years old at that time? I hardly believed how old she was. Who can resist her temptation? I envy her beauty.
Exceptional... Among the best of the decade
"L.A. Confidential" is a film that grows on you. After you first see it, you'll appreciate it, but not nearly as much as you do the 5th or 6th time. The truth is, the more you see it, the more you love it. It never gets old. I'm not someone who reviews movies by revealing the plot, but I will say that this has a fairly complex one, with many characters. (Another reason why you should see it multiple times) The acting is excellent, particularly by Guy Pearce, Russell Crowe and Kevin Spacey. They make you love the characters, despite their obvious and sometimes extreme flaws. (Doesn't that make them more likeable?) The direction is incredible, as well as the script. They both make the film VERY well rounded and memorable. It's a shame that "L.A. Confidential" didn't win Best Picture, and it should have been nominated for twice as many awards. The bottom line: Rent "L.A. Confidential" for a film whose characters and story you a sure to never forget. "Just the Facts..."

Like a good wine
This film is like a good wine - it matures with age. Every time that I've watched this movie I've liked it more and I liked it a lot to begin with.

The story follows three cops with a totally different outlook on life and MO. Very much like real life these cops are not model citizens. Bud White (Russell Crowe) dishes out his own punishment without the need for intervention of the courts. Jack Vincennes (Kevin Spacey) is not averse to making a bit of profit from newspaper hacks whilst arresting people. Ed Exley (Guy Pearce) is quite happy to grass on his partners to further his career. The three cops may not be particularly well matched, but they work together to solve the Nite Owl murder and find something altogether more sinister.

The acting from the three leads is outstanding and what makes this movie stand out even more is the excellent support from the rest of the cast. Kim Basinger, James Cromwell and Danny DeVito are all worthy of mention as is the script and the direction by Curtis Hanson. The only minor disappointment is the finish which was a little too Hollywood. A modern masterpiece 10/10
A classic in its own time!
A classic in its own time! L.A. Confidential is one of the most remarkable films ever created. We follow the lives of three policemen in 1950's Los Angeles-Wendal "Bud" White, Edmund Exley, and Jack Vincennes. The police department is trying to clean up its image while staying in a corrupt town in a corrupt time. Their reputation is however trashed once more in an internal drunken riot termed "Bloody Christmas." That's just the beginning, the spawn of the immense story, plot twists, and character development. Each character in the film is drastically changed by his or her experiences. The editing is always smooth and fast paced, and the cinematography always affixes the right mood. The set pieces are distinct eye candy. The soundtrack to this movie is a fine complement to the visuals. It mixes authentic fifties music with a beautifully orchestrated score that keeps audiences on the edges of their seats. The acting performances for this movie are collectively some of the best ever produced for the silver screen. The last time I've been this convinced of Characters was in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest." Russell Crowe, Guy Pierce, Kevin Spacey, and Kim Basinger (Best Supporting Actress - 1997) give especially standout performances. Overall, L.A. Confidential is the total package. It's superb at every angle. It has been voted the third best film of the nineties by one critic's association, and it is my personal favorite. Every time I watch it I discover new depth to the plot. I would recommend L.A. Confidential to anyone.
Best of 97
A beautiful film in so many ways, and a huge surprise coming from a Hollywood studio and not being directed by Scorsese or Spielberg.

The story is great. A wonderful distillation of James Ellroy's novel. It clarifies and simplifies a hugely complex story and still keeps its spirit intact. It also happens to have the funniest moment in cinema last year. And that moment has historical accuracy. Take that, Titanic. Terrific dialogue and an insightful look at issues pertenant today such as tabloid journalism and celebrity worship.

The look is dead on and beautiful, costumes lighting etc... The locations used were great.

The acting is wonderful. Russell Crowe gave my favorite performance of last year. Kevin Spacey was very close in his finest work yet. No one else can be complained about.

A wonderful throwback to the Hollywood that did things right and it seems to be doing is more consistently. Primary Colors and The Truman Show being good examples.

If you liked it, I would suggest going to your classics sections and picking up The Big Sleep and Touch of Evil.
Off the record, on the QT and unbelievably great
"L.A. Confidential" is what comes to mind when I think of police corruption movies, especially on the basis of pulling back the curtain of Los Angeles' star-studded image to expose its seamy underbelly. It's a world where the bad guys are vicious and the cops aren't much nicer. I do hear "overrated" a lot (these days) when discussing this movie, and obviously, I don't agree; but I think we can all agree that this is one hell of an ensemble cast. Even when I want to single one player out above the rest, another steps up to refute that notion. Every single person is ideal for his/her character. It's a huge part of why this movie is so damn good. That, and its flawless pacing.

There are plenty of reasons to love this movie, but maybe (maybe) above all else, is the setting. This period (let's say from '45 to '55) has long been my favorite in Hollywood cinema. It's partially why I take to movies like "Who Framed Roger Rabbit", "Chinatown" and "Devil in a Blue Dress". Between this movie's sets, locations, warm color palette, wardrobe and Goldsmith's score, it's a stunning depiction of the time and place. I mean, this is a nice-looking film. "L.A. Confidential" makes an airtight case for wanting to delve into such a disreputable world. The craft here is unparalleled.

Top ten, baby.

Rollo Tomasi, do you still remember?
"Rollo Tomasi" is a name that anyone had seen this movie should remember for the rest of his life or at least be aware of the existence of the name, because this is the key to the spirit of this whole story. Due to the setting of this clue, there is no doubt one great movie had become a classic!

As a Taiwanese, I saw a lot of Hong Kong movies about police and gangsters while I was a child, and they were all very impressive. Therefore, the particularly genre has been promoted to such high levels in my mind that I can hardly be pleased. Fortunately, "L.A. Confidential" satisfies me not only with its thoughtful scenario, but also with several great actors' performances. More specifically, the story is not just about justice versus evil, there are also many elements such as passion, wisdom, greed, friendship and of course love which all made this movie more than fun to watch. In other words, you might feel angry at this moment, shocked latter, and finally moved by their insistence on doing the right things which made us believe there are still several police worth our trust.

Guy Pearce was one big surprise in the movie not because he played the leading role of the movie, but for his courage and wisdom, and most important of all, his slightly pride that caused admiration accompanied by hostility at the same time. Because the complexity he showed, we couldn't help but be deeply attracted, and that's when we built connections with the character inside the frame. Secondly, Kevin Spacey was not the one who would gain our trust at first, but no one ought to disagree with his contribution after the shocked "Rollo Tomasi" scene. Likewise, Russell Crowe twisted his role impressions only after his cooperation with Guy Pearce, but he really needed to adjust his tempers for his own sake. Such a crew made this great movie never out-of-date, not even after similar stories keep brainwashing our minds.

How lucky I am to see such a classical film. As a matter of fact, I haven't found one movie that reaches the same level as it did, at least not in the genre. Thus, I just have to repeat watching the film again and again, and I believe many people are doing the same thing I do.
Only half GREAT!
Reviewers have been far too generous in praise of La Confidential. The script is a perfect example of Hollywood once again dropping the ball. The first half of the film is GREAT, as good or better than I wanted it to be: a juicy plot (plus various sub plots) of just the right complexity, a seductively delicious milieu, and fascinating characters.


Suddenly without warning, the story switches to the favorite action movie plot used by every other Hollywood hack – THE BIG CHEESE VILLAIN. You know this one, the evil authority figure symbolizing the corrupt establishment (such as a CEO, superior military officer, high government official, football coach, etc.) that no one would ever suspect turns out to be the criminal mastermind behind all the movie's mischief and mayhem. That worked in This Gun For Hire with Alan Ladd, but has been beat to death since Viet Nam and Watergate.

From the moment that Kevin Spacey is killed, the movie runs on automatic scriptwriter. As always the case with THE BIG CHEESE VILLAIN FORMULA, the major plot conflict and all sub plots can be conveniently resolved with an action packed ending where the hero (or heroes in this case) confront the villain and an army of evil henchmen in a setting reminiscent of the OK Corral. In the end, countless bad guys are blown away, yet THE BIG CHEESE is left to kill. As we've seen many times before, the crafty arch villain almost kills our heroes. And just when you've given up all hope, those physically and emotionally wounded good guys manage some last minute gunplay neatly dispatching old Mr. Corruption. And the world is right again.

As a bonus, the filmmakers of LA Confidential tacked on a schmaltzy epilogue with some cornball lines and long pathetic stares. This is a painfully obvious attempt to dupe us into thinking we experienced something profound. Oh yes, our heroes are a little more cynical, but they are much wiser, caring men, and their tarnished honor is still intact. Reminds me of Nancy Olson's line in Sunset Boulevard, `...just a rehash of something that wasn't very good to begin with.'

If you award flawed films like LA Confidential a top rating, what about noir classics like The Big Sleep, Out Of The Past, and Chinatown -- twenty stars at least? Personally, I would have enjoyed seeing more of Kevin Spacey and the ‘50s TV angle – as that's something different. I guess the filmmakers were constrained by the book, which I haven't read. But that doesn't excuse throwing out creative license, taking the easy way out, and opting for THE BIG CHEESE VILLAIN FORMULA, even if it's in the book.

Not a bad frame in the whole film
Every time I watch this film I love it more. What an incredible piece of film making. Once I sat with a pad of paper and kept track of what I thought was better in each scene, the writing or the acting, and I came up with a tie. Russell Crowe showed us all before "The Insider" what he was made of. Kim Basinger proved to all of us she is more than a pretty face. James Cromwell again reminded us he is one of the best character actors around. I had no idea who Guy Pierce was before this film and now I follow his career after this unbelievable performance. And Kevin Spacey...Kevin Spacey...Kevin Spacey...charming, classy, amazing, stole the movie. Rent this movie. If is wasn't released the same year as "Titanic" it would have won Best Picture.
