Movie Review by Zoltan
June 6th, 2010

Excellent Technicolor "Film Noir"

The seamy side of Hollywood in the 1950s is explored in this fascinating, multi-layered film based on James Ellory's famous novel.

L. A. Confidential's gripping story centers around the activities of the Los Angeles Police Force and a ruthless, muckracking magazine publisher named Sid Hudgens.

Jack Vincennes is a high-profile cop who benefits from Hudgens' busts of movie stars and political figures.

Russell Crowe as Bud White steals the show as the rugged, straight-arrow detective who finds himself caught up in the city's slimy underbelly because, in part, of his torrid love affair with a beautiful, high-priced hooker named Lynn Bracken.

Check out L. A. Confidential. It's moviemaking at its absolute finest.
