Curtis Hanson's best movie may not be the American masterpiece many think, but it remains one of the best neo-noirs of the '90s and a fine example of classical Hollywood storytelling.

Typically, period piece Oscar winner = not my kind of movie, but L.A. Confidential proves that movies can be intelligent, literate, emotional, but still be suspenseful and exciting.
