Format: DVD
Don't misunderstand me--this movie IS the tour de force that others have expounded on here already--and I love it as much as anyone, ranking it right up there with Chinatown as an L.A. film noir classic. But you will NOT see the movie Curtis Hanson made if you watch this widescreen DVD edition!!
I have watched this movie countless times on videotape and so I was SHOCKED to find that the DVD noticably detracted from what this film is! Though the back of the DVD case details "WIDESCREEN VERSION Presented in a "letterbox" widescreen format preserving the SCOPE ASPECT RATIO of its original theatrical exhibition", I did NOT find this to be true (and I am no newcomer to widescreen format). Shots that had appeared as medium shots on video have become head shots--people are now out of frame--this is a CHANGED film! --and WEIRD things also occur with the soundtrack! Dialogue is mixed at a noticably lower level relative to background and peripheral noises that are overly augmented.
I have to say, it boggles my mind that watching this movie in the "newest and most improved" format has, for the first time, left me feeling like I watched 2 entirely different movies. There is an artistic freedom being threatened here by what is ultimately a revisionist medium, the implications of which are truly frightening--and oddly parallel to current world events.
In all fairness, I haven't even gotten to the special features, and maybe this DVD is worth having for those rarities themselves, I don't know. But if you have never watched this extraordinary film, I beg you, SEEK IT OUT ON VHS! or you will miss the experience. If you love this film already, be prepared for a letdown with this one.

I wanted to watch this movie right from the moment of its release more than six years ago, but for one reason or other I never got around to do it...until now. Luckily I did not continue procrastinating, because this is probably one of the best movies in the film noir category.
The story, based on the novel by James Ellroy, starts with Danny De Vito's narration of the latest events in the city of angels, which include the arrest of Mickey C, head of the organized crime. I have always enjoyed listening to De Vito narrate a story, and as happened in "The War of the Roses", I was enthralled from the beginning. De Vito plays a journalist working for a tabloid called Hush-hush, who has several contacts inside the police department that give him exclusives in exchange for publicity. One of these is Sergeant Jack Vincennes (Kevin Spacey), a classic "ladies man", interested in fame and in the Hollywood world much more than he is interested in police business. Vincennes works in the same precinct with Sergeant, soon to be Detective Lieutenant, Ed Exley (Guy Pearce) and with Officer Bud White (Russell Crowe). Exley is the typical "go by the book" guy, son of a famous officer murdered years ago in a crime that was never solved. White is a cop whose main interest is helping ladies in distress, playing a typical knight in a shinning armor. After a situation at the police station ends up in disaster, the relationship among the three policemen is turned into a confrontational one when White's partner is forced to quit his job.
Shortly after those events a multiple murder in the Night Owl will have the three policemen desperately trying to solve the same crime and facing a well-oiled criminal organization.

Format: Blu-ray
This movie may be the best of the police detective genre. Brilliantly written and brilliantly acted. The movie flies by and takes you in so many different directions that you hardly have time to catch your breath. This was Russell Crowe's breakout movie and although he was not given star status, he made it his movie. Kevin Spacey is incredible, Kim Basinger utterly "steamy" and James Cromwell, Danny DeVito and James Strathairn are perfect in their roles. The transfer to Blu-ray is well done but has some problems with the video at the start and does not meet all the expectations of a Blu-ray. Lots of bonus features, some interesting, some not so much.

Format: DVD
"L.A. Confidential" is the story of three Los Angeles police officers who work in a rather corrupt department in 1953. Bud White (Russell Crowe) has a violent temper and is not above beating up a suspect to get answers. Vincennes (Kevin Spacey) loves the spotlight; he's the technical consultant for a TV show and takes bribes from a gossip columnist. Exley (Guy Pearce) is a young, straight-arrow cop who wants to live up to his late father's reputation. Together, they investigate some murders that may involve a high-priced call-girl (Oscar-winner Kim Basinger).

This movie is often described as a "film noir," and that kept me from seeing the movie for a long time. But I do like the movie a lot; the actors are all wonderful and there are several twists to the story. It is an ensemble piece; the four stars give exciting, yet understated performances, and James Cromwell, as the police captain, and Danny De Vito, as the tabloid writer, are also outstanding. This is a trip back to days of "Dragnet," with interesting characters, some violence, and lots of suspense. Heartily recommended.
