    No idea why I haven't seen this before.

    Everything about this is perfect, harkens back to old cinema.

    That being said, if you go into this for the first time with the new, 'it's hip to be clever', 'I've seen this type of stuff 1000 times' mentality and can not appreciate the solid 'cliche' mechanisms that come with classic story telling then I only have one thing to say to you....

    L.A. Confidential directed by Curtis Hanson, starring stormy cast of Kevin Spacey, Guy Pearce and Russel Crowe. L.A. Confidential has become a celebrated neo-film-noir, with multiple layers of dark truths beneath it. Entire cast of the film gives praise-worthy performance. It might be that Steven Spielberg gave homage to a similar scene, from L.A. Confidential scene, where Kevin Spacey is shot, into his film Minority Report '03, where Colin Ferrell gets shot, both coincidently echoing same tone of the scene.

    I think all I knew about this movie was the clip shown on the Mystery Science Theater 3000 Vice Presidential Command Performance Academy of Robots' Choice Awards Preview Special, so I thought it was going to be a lot of boring standing around and saying cryptic things with Kim Basinger, who turns out to be in this movie about as much as Danny DiVito is in the poster.

    Instead, I liked La Confidentiál, and that I'm glad it was made…

    This is an example why sometimes I get so proud of the 1990´s.

    I remember some movies being so important to my formation as a movie fan and definitely L.A. Confidential is one of the main reasons I love cinema.

    Back then one of the things that kept me thinking was how would it be like going to the theaters to watch Rear Window, Sunset Blvd, Anatomy of a Murder, The Conversation and many others films that stays with you…

    L.A. Confidential presents a sordid history of Los Angeles; a city trying to lay the foundations of its future at a time when it was caught between the glamorous image of the movies and the criminal underbelly perpetuated by organised mafia activity.

    Curtis Hansen's adaptation of James Ellroy's novel tells the history of the city through a blend of fact and fiction. The main web is that of three cops connected by a murder rife with internal corruption, but the…
