L.A. Confidential is “tough, gorgeous and vastly entertaining” (Janet Maslin, The New York Times), “a genuine masterpiece that will knock your socks off” (Rex Reed). Director Curtis Hanson and a terrific cast serve up a “ravishing, thrilling tale of police corruption and Hollywood glamour” (Marshall Fine, Gannett Newspapers) in this adaptation of James Ellroy’s novel. Three cops (Kevin Spacey, Russell Crowe, Guy Pearce), a call girl (Kim Basinger), a mysterious millionaire (David Strathairn), a tabloid journalist (Danny DeVito), and the Chief of Detectives (James Cromwell) fuel a labyrinthine plot rife with mystery, ambition, romance, and humor. What you’ll see is off the record, on the QT and very hush-hush.
