This movie was a thrilling change from the pointless and inane crime movies Hollywood seems to relish in churning out. It was brilliantly cast and the sets and costumes were fantastic. But if you're going to buy this movie make sure to buy a copy with the commentary at the end. That was the best part, because James Ellroy, the writer of the book this movie is based on, was interviewed. He was hilariously full of himself and so pompous I thought he was going to explode! After seeing what a great movie it was, and listening to him go on and on about himself, I had to go read the book. The book stunk. This is one of those rare times when a stellar movie is made from an uninspired toilet-read. So, my advice is to watch the movie and skip the book.

The original &quot L.A. Confidential&quot DVD was the very first DVD I ever purchased. I am very happy to know that finally, after all these years, a &quot special edition&quot of this movie is on the way! This film was the closest thing to &quot perfect&quot in terms of the casting, the scriptwriting, and the settings. After 10 years, it still bugs me that &quot Titanic&quot won Best Picture instead of &quot L.A. Confidential&quot . Can't wait to see all the extra features!
