8 / 10 (10177)


Three cops tackle an unsolved crime at a L.A. coffee shop. Lieutenant Exley is out to avenge his murdered father. The ex-partner of Officer White, involved in a scandal rooted out by Exley, was one of the victims. Meanwhile, Sergeant Vincennes feeds classified information to a tabloid magnate.

MUBI's take

Harking back to murder mysteries of old, when the genre teemed with archetypes, atmosphere, and serpentine stories, L.A. Confidential is to noirs what Unforgiven is to westerns. A modern classic brimming with fiery performances and guided by the assured style of the late Curtis Hanson.
