L.A. Confidential

Five stars from me. Noir set in ’53 that takes ‘Crime Story’ up a notch (Bud White = Mike Torello) and of course gets things right, down to the ‘Dragnet’ clone. Our former police chief John Timoney sounds like Dudley Smith, an Irishman who’s lived here a long time. A good double feature with True Confessions (same genre, city and period with Robert DeNiro as a traditional priest).
