What is the movie L.A. Confidential about?
Released in 1997 and based on the book of the same name by James Elroy, “L.A. Confidential” is a neo-noir crime movie. Directed by Curtis Hanson, it helped introduce Australian actor Guy Pearce and New Zealand actor Russell Crowe to the American audience. Set in the year 1957, “L.A. Confidential” revolves around the police corruption of the time and the point in which Hollywood glamour and violent crime meet. Its two main characters are Sergeant Ed Exley (Guy Pearce), son of a legendary LAPD detective and an ambitious, by the book police officer whose ethics and strict dedication to following police procedure have him isolated from his peers, and Officer Wendell “Bud” White (Russell Crowe), LAPD’s popular enforcer, a sort of a stereotypical muscle head with a soft heart. A famous actor, a number of women and a whole bunch of mobsters are all killed in seemingly separate cases, but investigations begin to show clues that it all might be somehow connected. When their cases cross paths, Exley and White are forced to work together to catch the bad guys, but their mutual dislike threatens to jeopardize the investigation. Their inquiries will lead them down the path of corruption going all the way to the very top of the LAPD pyramid. “L.A. confidential” was nearly unanimously showered with praises and it was nominated for nine Academy Awards, but it had the misfortune of going up against “Titanic”, and ended up winning only two – best supporting actress (Kim Basinger) and best adapted screenplay.

I didn't like this movie, as i do not like watching the gangsta fights between each other, the bad cops and good ones. It makes me sick watching how corrupted the world really is! And i can easily say that i was really bored all those two hours and a half, as i could predict every single thing that has happen in the movie. And the plot was quite banal. The only thing that i enjoyed was the presence of great actors in the movie. I love Russell Crowe, he is the ideal of a perfect man for me, Guy Pearce was not bad as well, Kim Basinger looked good. Though i was a bit disappointed by the role performed by Kevin Spacey, i expected more from him. And consider all those actors, i was still very bored with the movie. Of course Kim Basinger can be called the “jewel” of the movies, and as far as i understood she was honored with Oscar award for the roles in this movie, so this way she is the only reason why i recommend you to watch this movie. that is in the case if you are a man, but if you are a woman, mmm, than enjoy the handsome Russell Crowe.

Los Angeles is the land of dreams, it is the city of angels, and only in the fifties of the twenty century those angels in their majority has become the “fallen” ones. The head of the criminal world Mickey Cohen was arrested and the person who tries to take his place was suddenly killed, that was the moment when Los Angeles police department has started its investigation, but in this police kingdom everything is not right as well, there is corruption in it, lies and false evidences.
It is a great movie which you need to watch very concentrated, because it has a lot of subject lines, a lot of tasks that you need to solve, and if losing a few minutes of it, you may lose the whole point of the movie. The actors who performed in it, are one of the best ones in Hollywood: Russell Crowe, Guy Pearce, Kevin Spacey, Kim Basinger and many others. The style of this movie is above all praises- the makeup, suits. It is a beautiful movie, and one of the best criminal dramas that it is a must to see.

A great cast round out a taut script in this neo-noir crime drama. The pace is brisk and the production design transports the audience to another place altogether. Never sacrificing smarts for entertainment, 'L.A. Confidential' is a well rounded film.
