Movie Review #297: L.A. Confidential

An example of two great leads pwning a film

Legitimately good detective movies are quite rare these days, and that’s why I had to travel back to 1997 to find one. I was merely three years old when this was released, and growing up I’d heard from my parents about actors like Kevin Spacey and Guy Pearce, who are hardly visible from Hollywood movies as of late. But the two actors I was talking about at the start was actually Pearce and Russell Crowe, whose contrasting characters were the obvious standouts. The story was quite compelling as well though I felt the plot was a bit confusing. It’s a clever, well-made classic.
