(1997 / 138 minutes)
Slick and effective neo-noir produced in the classic Hollywood mode and adapted from James Ellroy’s literary 1990 crime novel. Smart cop Guy Pearce and brute cop Russell Crowe (both in star-making performances) team up to defeat decadent corruption that reaches into the heights of power. Kim Basinger plays a Veronica Lake look-alike sex worker.
