Notable DVD
Description
Curtis Hanson's 1997 adaptation of James Ellroy's noirish novel of police corruption and Hollywood glamour captured nine Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, and won Oscars for Best Supporting Actress (Kim Basinger) and Best Adapted Screenplay (Hanson and Brian Helgeland) after scoring an unprecedented number of Best Picture and Best Director honors from critics groups nationwide.

"L.A. Confidential is described as film noir, and so it is, but it is more: Unusually for a crime film, it deals with the psychology of the characters, for example in the interplay between the two men who are both in love with Basinger's hooker. It contains all the elements of police action, but in a sharply clipped, more economical style; the action exists not for itself but to provide an arena for the personalities. The dialogue is lovely; not the semiparody of a lot of film noir, but the words of serious people trying to reveal or conceal themselves. And when all of the threads are pulled together at the end, you really have to marvel at the way there was a plot after all, and it all makes sense, and it was all right there waiting for someone to discover it."óRoger Ebert
