#tbt L.A. Confidential review
L.A. Confidential is good. I mean what else would you expect out of an Oscar winning crime drama with a great cast like Kevin Spacey, Guy Pearce, Kim Basinger, Danny DeVito and even Russel Crowe. With a great story about corruption and murder in 1950's Los Angeles what's not to like? The answer is nothing. L.A. Confidential is pretty damn terrific. It's about a mass murder at a cafe called the Nite Owl and the three very different cops who try to solve it in their own way. One is a good guy who follows the rules, (Pearce) one is tough and puts up a fight, (Crowe) and one is sleazy and likes the spotlight (Spacey). All of this contributed to a great movie especially Russel Crowe's performance as a vulnerable tough guy. (I wish his performance in Les Miserables could of been this good) I thought this would be an appropriate movie to review for Throwback Thursday because it is based in a similar time, place, and setting as the upcoming crime flick Gangster Squad, which looks awesome and I plan to review. Anyway, whether you plan on seeing Gangster Squad or not, you should watch L.A. Confidential.
