Movie Review: LA Confidential (1997)



LA Confidential

Few movies come this close to perfection like this one. With Kim Basinger and Russel Crow in the cast, both Oscar winners, one would expect nothing less. Everything in this movie is so perfect. The sets that display a 1940s Los Angeles, the stellar cast and outstanding performances, the outstanding editing and the direction o all come together, helped by an excellent screen play.

The movie revolves around corruption in the LA police force investigated by two cops, dramatically different in their approaches. One is a renegade loose cannon and the other tries hard to play by the rules. The hostile plot is too much for each of them to handle by himself, that the two of them must join hands to break the case. My verdict: This is easily one of the best movies I've seen.
