Review: L.A. Confidential (1997)

L.A. CONFIDENTIAL should have won Best Picture for 1997. Curtis Hanson’s adaptation of the James Ellroy novel about corruption and greed is one of my favorite movies ever made. Why? It really comes down to two things: a terrific ensemble cast and the ability of Hanson and co-screenwriter Brian Helgeland to adapt a mammoth novel into a film that actually works.
