L.A. Confidential 1997

From Amazon: In a time when it seems that every other movie makes some claim to being a film noir, L.A. Confidential is the real thing--a gritty, sordid tale of sex, scandal, betrayal, and corruption of all sorts (police, political, press--and, of course, very personal) in 1940s Hollywood.

L.A. Confidential Movie Review by Valerie (12/17/2006)
