Directed by Curtis Hanson and based on James Ellroy’s “L.A. Quartet” series of novels, “L.A. Confidential” was nominated for seven Academy Awards,® including Best Picture and Best Director, winning two (Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress for Kim Basinger). The evocative and sordid tale of Hollywood in days gone by boasts an all-star cast which, in addition to Basinger (“Batman,” “I Dreamed of Africa”), includes Russell Crowe (“Gladiator,” “A Beautiful Mind”), Kevin Spacey (“American Beauty,” “The Usual Suspects”), Academy Award nominee Danny Devito, Guy Pearce and James Cromwell. The plot, involving three cops, a call girl, a mysterious millionaire and a tabloid journalist, is rife with mystery, ambition, romance and humor.  Chicago Sun-Times’ Roger Ebert called the film “seductive and beautiful, cynical and twisted — one of the best films of the year.”
