LA CONFIDENTIAL is one of my top-top crime movies. It is on Michael's list and on mine. My friend and Hawaii movie critic, Terry Hunter, summerizes my feelings about this movie perfectly (so nice when that happens):
LA CONFIDENTIAL is a terrific film noir set in the 1950's. Corruption inside and outside of the police department dominates the great story. The acting is terrific--Kim Basinger won a best supporting actress Oscar--and the smart, intricate script is completely absorbing. We get to see behind the sleazy glamour of Hollywood in an era that is long gone. Russell Crowe, Guy Pearce, and Kevin Spacey play unforgettable characters. There's plenty of sex and violence, but none of it is gratuitous. Every year should produce a movie this fascinating.
YEAH! Have you seen it? Do you agree?
