White recognizes Nite Owl victim Susan Lefferts as one of Patchett's escorts. He begins a relationship with Lynn Bracken, a Veronica Lake look-alike prostitute. Lefferts' mother tells White that Susan was Stensland's girlfriend; he searches the crawl space under her house and finds the decomposed corpse of Meeks. In his review for The New York Observer, Andrew Sarris wrote, "Mr. Crowe strikes the deepest registers with the tortured character of Bud White, a part that has had less cut out of it from the book than either Mr. Spacey's or Mr. Pearce's ... but Mr. Crowe at moments reminded me of James Cagney's poignant performance in Charles Vidor's Love Me or Leave Me (1955), and I can think of no higher praise."[33] Kenneth Turan, in his review for Los Angeles Times, wrote, "The only potential audience drawback L.A. Confidential has is its reliance on unsettling bursts of violence, both bloody shootings and intense physical beatings that give the picture a palpable air of menace. Overriding that, finally, is the film's complete command of its material."[34] In his review for The Independent, Ryan Gilbey wrote, "In fact, it's a very well made and intelligent picture, assembled with an attention to detail, both in plot and characterisation, that you might have feared was all but extinct in mainstream American cinema."[35][36] Richard Williams, in his review for The Guardian, wrote, "L.A. Confidential gets just about everything right. The light, the architecture, the slang, the music ... a wonderful Lana Turner joke. A sense, above all, of damaged people arriving to make new lives and getting seduced by the scent of night-blooming jasmine, the perfume of corruption."[37] I have made some corrections to this page, based on a recent complete viewing, and a half-dozen reviews of specific scenes. Jack's pistol may have been a Commander, but could not have been a Combat Commander, as the latter model was not introduced until 1972. It's likely that the other Colt .45 pistols shown in the movie were commercial Government Models, and not military-issue M1911A1s. The pistol with which Capt. Dudley shoots Jack must be a Colt M1903 Pocket Hammerless, rather than a M1908 as previously posted, as in the squad room, Dudley informs the assembled officers that Jack was killed with a .32 (the '08 is a .380). The gun planted by White is much too small to be a K-frame (previously identified as a Model 10). It's probably a .32, built on a smaller J- or even I-frame. Smith & Wesson introduced model numbers long after the '53 time period in which the movie was set, so a "Model 10" would be correctly identified as a "Military & Police" model. Likewise, the "Model 14" which was previously posted as the type of revolver with which Dudley shot White at the Victory Motel, was actually a Combat Masterpiece, later numbered Model 15. The 15 is readily identified, compared to the 14, by its Baughman ramp front sight; the 14 had a patridge front sight, as shown in the illustration.

  1. Smith invites Exley and White into a trap. After they kill all of Smith's gunmen in a shootout, Smith shoots White in the chest. Exley holds Smith at gunpoint and, as the police arrive, shoots him in the back - killing Smith. At the police station, Exley explains what he, Vincennes and White learned about Smith. The LAPD protect their image by saying Smith died a hero in the shootout, whilst awarding Exley a second medal for bravery. Upon leaving City Hall, Exley shakes hands with a recuperating White and watches as he and Bracken drive off to her home in Arizona.

  3. User Comments for L.A. Confidential: jgraham (9 out of 10 ) Phenomenal pacing, great characterization. Several improvements were made in the screen translation which helps tighten the mystery, but everything keeps snapping along so well it's almost hilarious
  4. Spicy and boiling-hot, this sensational early-'50s crime drama is a morality play disguised as pulp fiction -- a sprawling saga of corruption and redemption set against a flashy West Coast backdrop.
  5. It's an almost universally-accepted fact that the crowning achievement of director Curtis Hanson's career is L.A. Confidential. Handed a Halloween release date in 1997 (the same day as An American.
  6. Agree that the "Jones" gun is a K-frame, probably Military & Police .38. The "Fitch" gun, is still, in my opinion, much too small to be a K, and is likely a 6-shot .32.

ReFrame and IMDb have already awarded the ReFrame Stamp to 34 movies so far, including Lady Bird and Girls Trip. Now they want to do the same for TV One of the reasons "L.A. Confidential'' is so good, why is deserves to be mentioned with "Chinatown," is that it's not just plot and atmosphere. There are convincing characters here, not least Kim Basinger's hooker, whose quiet line, "I thought I was helping you,'' is one of the movie's most revealing moments. Russell Crowe ("Virtuosity" and "Romper Stomper'') and Guy Pearce ("The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert") are two Australian actors who here move convincingly into star-making roles, and Kevin Spacey uses perfect timing to suggest his character's ability to move between two worlds while betraying both (he has a wonderful scene where he refuses to cooperate with a department investigation--until they threaten his job on the TV show).

Jerry Goldsmith's score for the film was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Dramatic Score, but lost to James Horner's score for Titanic.[21] L.A. Confidential is the 1997 crime noir film co-written and directed by Curtis Hanson and was an adaptation of the novel of the same name written by James Ellroy (the crime novelist whose stories have been adapted for such films as The Black Dahlia, Cop, and Dark Blue). Set in the early 1950s, the film follows three LAPD detectives whose paths cross during an investigation into a multiple homicide that involved a former officer. The film's cast includes Russell Crowe, Kevin Spacey, Guy Pearce, James Cromwell and Kim Basinger, who received an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Lynn Bracken. L.A. Confidential was later adapted for television twice, in a 1999 unsold pilot for FOX that starred Kiefer Sutherland as Det. Jack Vincennes (see below) and then in an unsold 2018 television pilot for CBS that starred Walton Goggins as Det. Jack Vincennes. In 2015, the United States Library of Congress selected L.A. Confidential for preservation in the National Film Registry, finding it "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant". L.A. Confidential (1990) is a neo-noir novel by James Ellroy, and the third of his L.A. Quartet series. James Ellroy dedicated L.A. Confidential to Mary Doherty Ellroy. The epigraph is A glory that costs everything and means nothing— Steve Erickson . 3 In other media. 6 External links. The story revolves around several Los Angeles Police.

Pearce did not like Ed when he first read the screenplay and remarked, "I was pretty quick to judge him and dislike him for being so self-righteous ... But I liked how honest he became about himself. I knew I could grow to respect and understand him."[11] Please enter your email address and we will email you a new password.

White drives to the police station and fights Exley, which ends with the two realizing Smith is both corrupt and the mastermind behind everything; Stensland killed Meeks over heroin stolen from one of Cohen's underlings, which triggered the events of Smith orchestrating the Nite Owl killings to have Stensland murdered and later framing the three African Americans behind the crime - with Exley and Vincennes having arrested them just after Smith's men had planted evidence at their residence. They decide to cooperate to take down Smith. Exley and White confront Loew, and force him to reveal that Smith has been taking over Cohen's heroin empire. They later find Patchett murdered, and deduced that all of the other killings have been Smith tying up loose ends.

L.A. Confidential (1997) - Rotten Tomatoe

  1. We meet a millionaire pornographer named Pierce Patchett (David Strathairn). He runs a high-class call girl operation in which aspiring young actresses are given plastic surgery to make them resemble movie stars; one of them is Lynn Bracken (Kim Basinger), who, it is said, has been "cut'' to look like Veronica Lake. Bud White, the Crowe character, tracks her down, thinking she'll have info about the coffee-shop massacre. ("You're the first man in months who hasn't told me I look just like Veronica Lake.'') At this point, perhaps an hour into the movie, I felt inside a Raymond Chandler novel: not only because of the atmosphere and the dialogue, but also because there seemed to be no way all of these characters and events could be drawn together into a plot that made sense. Not that I would have cared; I enjoy film noir for the journey as much as the destination.
  2. L.A. Confidential is an exciting homage to pulp noire and it was just as entertaining upon rewatch as the first time I saw it. All the archetypes are there, the femme fatale, the bad cop, the corrupt politician, but the amazing cast brings so much life into these characters

One of the best scenes takes place in the Formosa Cafe, a restaurant much frequented in the 1940s by unlikely boothfellows. Cops turn up to question Johnny Stompanato, a hood who may know something about the Cohen killings. His date gives them some lip.

Stensland was one of the victims. Exley and Vincennes arrest three African-Americans for the murders; they later escape from police custody and are killed by Exley in a shootout. Exley is decorated for bravery. However, a Mexican girl, Inez, who was raped by the African-Americans around the time of the murders, admits to Exley that she falsely reported the time they left her in order to try and get them convicted for the Nite Owl massacre. She tells him that she "did what she had to do for justice," because otherwise "nobody would care that they raped a Mexican girl from Boyle Heights." Exley realizes that this places their guilt for the Nite Owl murders in doubt.

Film critic Roger Ebert gave the film four out of four stars and described it as "seductive and beautiful, cynical and twisted, and one of the best films of the year."[24] Later, he included it as one of his "Great Movies" and described it as "film noir, and so it is, but it is more: Unusually for a crime film, it deals with the psychology of the characters ... 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".[25] Behind everything, setting the moral tone and pulling a lot of the plot threads, is the angular captain, seemingly so helpful. James Cromwell, who was the kindly farmer in "Babe,'' has the same benevolent smile in this role, but the eyes are cold, and in his values can be seen, perhaps, the road ahead to Rodney King. "L.A.

L.A. confidential is probably closest to a lot of old black and white Noir films of the 40s and 50s. Chinatown is the other essential classic LA Noir that must be seen.

There is a mass murder at The Nite Owl restaurant, including a former LAPD officer. Detectives Bud White, Edmund Exley, and Jack Vincennes all get caught up in the case, which turns out be part of the power struggle in organized crime after Real Life mobster Mickey Cohen is convicted.. The book by James Ellroy was later adapted into a film starring Russell Crowe, Guy. L.A. Confidential was also adapted as an 2003 unsold pilot written to be a prequel to the film starring Kiefer Sutherland as Det. Jack Vincennes, David Conrad as Det. Ed Exley, Josh Hopkins as Officer Bud White, Melissa George as Lynn Bracken, and Tom Nowicki as Captain Dudley Smith. Originally planned for a 13 episode run on HBO, the premium channel eventually passed on the project. The FOX network then ordered a pilot, but declined to pick it up as a series. Filmed in 1999 and intended to air in 2000, the pilot did not air on television until the fall of 2003. Though intended to be a prequel, the pilot differs from the film on a few facts, like Bud White's first meeting with Lynn Bracken and Ed Exley already working for Internal Affairs. The episode ends in a cliffhanger, one which will never be resolved. The entire episode is available as a special feature on home video copies of L.A. Confidential the film. Note: The episode lacks opening and closing titles, not even a title card, and the IMDB page is sparse, thus many of the actors cannot be properly credited.

Ed is an ambitious careerist who wants to do everything by the book. His captain, Dudley Smith (James Cromwell), kindly explains that an officer must be prepared to lie, cheat and steal--all in the name, of course, of being sure the guilty go to jail. Capt. Smith likes to call his men "good lads,'' and seems so wise we can almost believe him as he administers little quizzes and explains that advancement depends on being prepared to give the "right answers.'' "L.A. Confidential'' is immersed in the atmosphere and lore of film noir, but it doesn't seem like a period picture--it believes its noir values and isn't just using them for decoration. It's based on a novel by James Ellroy, that lanky, sardonic poet of Los Angeles sleaze. Its director, Curtis Hanson ("Bad Influence," "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle"), weaves a labyrinthine plot, but the twists are always clear because the characters are so sharply drawn; we don't know who's guilty or innocent, but we know who should be.

Damien Chazelle's 2016 film La La Land is perhaps best known as the antagonist to Moonlight in that year's Oscar race. This is a shame because it belittles both films. La La Land is fundamentally about dreams, whether we deserve to achieve them and how we get there. RELATED: 10 Modern Musicals To Watch If You Like La La Land It wears its influences on its sleeve -- traces of the MGM musicals. To give his cast and crew points and counterpoints to capture Los Angeles in the 1950s, Hanson held a "mini-film festival", showing one film a week: The Bad and the Beautiful, because it epitomized the glamorous Hollywood look; In a Lonely Place, because it revealed the ugly underbelly of Hollywood glamor; Don Siegel's The Lineup and Private Hell 36, "for their lean and efficient style";[10] and Kiss Me Deadly, because it was "so rooted in the futuristic '50s: the atomic age."[6][10] Hanson and the film's cinematographer Dante Spinotti studied Robert Frank's 1958 photographic book The Americans and felt that the influence of his work was in every aspect of the film's visuals. Spinotti wanted to compose the shots of the film as if he was using a still camera and suggested to Hanson to shoot the film in the Super 35 widescreen format and in spherical lenses, which in Spinotti's opinion, conveyed the same feel of a still photo.[13] While not reaching the twisted heights of the superbly sinister Chinatown, L.A. Confidential is smart, complex and engrossing.

L.A. Confidential finished at No. 1 in a list of films shot in the last 25 years about Los Angeles culture. In a poll conducted by the Los Angeles Times, Curtis Hanson's 1997 drama topped P.T. Anderson's Boogie Nights and Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown. This means the year 1997 appears to have been vintage for Tinseltown at the movies: the top three films on the list all came out that.

In the end Spenser Confidential is a funny and enjoyable ride filled with some grade A talent. While the writing and editing may fall short the cast definitely saves the day. This movie is worth the watch if you need laugh to stave off the COVID-19 Blues. For those reasons I'm giving Spenser Confidential a B- and a Netflix Thumbs Up

I was basing my assessment of the Commander on what was available in the early '50s when the movie is set, rather than what was available to the movie producers; even if the gun used in the production was a Combat Commander, it would have to represent a Commander. I reviewed the movie again, looking specifically for details of Jack's gun, and I couldn't even be sure it was a Commander. There's no clear shot of the hammer, and I couldn't really tell if the slide was Commander- or Government-length. Dudley's gun is clearly a 4" Combat Masterpiece; it's seen in profile as he thumb-cocks it to shoot Exley in the Victory Motel. The gun "dropped" by White is appears to be a .32 Hand Ejector, which was made in a number of sub-models, and in very large numbers in the first half of the 20th Century. It's a six-shot .32, with round-butt frame. Growing the LA Confidential Cannabis Strain.

Confidential was a key magazine of the 1950s, a monthly that sold millions of copies with its seamy exposes of celebrity drugs and sex. I found it on my dad's night table and read it breathlessly, the stories of reefer parties, multiple divorces, wife-swapping and "leading men'' who liked to wear frilly undergarments. The magazine sank in a sea of lawsuits, but it created a genre; the trash tabloids are its direct descendants.Jack's partner (Jack McGee) fires an unidentifiable revolver during the botched undercover drug buy.

A DVD was released on April 21, 1998. In addition to the film, it included two featurettes, an interactive map of Los Angeles, a music-only track, a theatrical trailer, and three TV spots.[54] Like Chinatown before it, this twisted and twisting tale of cops, crime, corruption and hangers-on in 1950s Los Angeles artfully evokes the flip side of the City of Dreams.

Confidential is a 1997 American neo-noir crime film directed, produced and co-written by Curtis Hanson. The screenplay by Hanson and Brian Helgeland is based on James Ellroy's 1990 novel of the same name, the third book in his L.A. Quartet series. The film tells the story of a group of LAPD officers in 1953, and the intersection of police corruption and Hollywood celebrity. The title refers to the 1950s scandal magazine Confidential, portrayed in the film as Hush-Hush.

Roland Navarette (Steven Lambert) is seen using an M1911A1 when Exley and Carlisle bust in a hideout. White gets one from his car, giving the pistol and an extra magazine to Exley to use during the final gunfight at the Victory Motel. In 1950's Los Angeles, three police officers have their own distinctive style of dealing with their jobs. Jack Vincennes (KEVIN SPACEY) is a cop on the take from a tabloid owner/reporter, Sid Hudgeons (DANNY DEVITO), whose magazine Hush Hush prominently features Jack's recent drug busts The real Rollo Tomassi was never caught, and the vengeance Exley felt because of this is what motivated him to become a cop. Now, if you've seen L.A. Confidential, you know that Rollo Tomassi exists within the film's world in a very significant way.But the scene that most grabs me concerning this elusive figment is the moment we first hear about him Vincennes helps Hudgens to set up actor Matt Reynolds in a homosexual tryst with District Attorney Ellis Loew. After Reynolds is killed, a guilt-ridden Vincennes is determined to find the killer. Vincennes soon visits Smith with the evidence he found: that Meeks and Stensland worked together under Smith's command a decade earlier, and were linked to Patchett, who uses his prostitutes to blackmail public figures. As Vincennes explains that he has not yet told Exley about this, Smith suddenly shoots him – Vincennes dies after murmuring "Rollo Tomasi", a name which Exley told him in confidence. Exley's suspicions are aroused when Smith asks him who Rollo Tomasi is. During an interrogation of Hudgens, Smith arranges for White to see photos of Bracken having sex with Exley, which sends White into a rage and prompts him to go after Exley. Shortly afterwards, Smith kills Hudgens. Taut pacing, brilliantly dense writing and Oscar-worthy acting combine to produce a smart, popcorn-friendly thrill ride.

Curtis Hanson had read half a dozen of James Ellroy's books before L.A. Confidential and was drawn to its characters, not the plot. He said, "What hooked me on them was that, as I met them, one after the other, I didn't like them - but as I continued reading, I started to care about them."[6] Ellroy's novel also made Hanson think about Los Angeles and provided him with an opportunity to "set a movie at a point in time when the whole dream of Los Angeles, from that apparently golden era of the '20s and '30s, was being bulldozed."[6] L.A.
