Film #42: L.A. Confidential (1997)

Plot - Like every good drama based on a book, it's layered plot and character relationships are actually interesting.

Form - Action film zazz with barely any action, although it makes the actual transitions into violence less jarring.

F/X - Kim Bassinger doesn't look a million years old, which is probably a special effect in and of itself.

Acting - Everybody's good. I wish they would have picked somebody besides Danny DeVito.

Mise en scene - The '50s damn it. Good looking '50s at that.

Quotables - Probably, but I can't recall any goodies.

Cool stuff - Aside from what's already mentioned, no.
