Based on the Novel and with an Introduction by James Ellroy
Now a Major Motion Picture from Warner Bros.
Los Angeles in the early '50s. A booming city anxious to shed its small-town skin. A city being touted as the metropolis of the future, L.A. is practically paradise on earth. That's the image. The reality is something different. From its fabulous mansions to its sizzling nightclubs, it's a city of corruption, double-dealing, and dangerous passions. A horrific mass murder shatters the simmering facade as three cops, each with his own private agenda for solving the case, are inextricably linked in a dangerously tightening spiral where justice and truth may cost them everything.
Based on James Ellroy's epic masterpiece, this screenplay of L.A. Confidential is being published to coincide with the release of the Warner Bros. film starring Kevin Spacey, Russell Crowe, Guy Pearce, James Cromwell, David Strathairn, Kim Basinger, and Danny DeVito.
L.A. Confidential has the critics raving!
"A flawless ensemble cast and style to burn ... boiled down beautifully from James Ellroy's labyrinthine novel."
-Janet Maslin, New York Times
"An electrifying thriller ... L.A. Confidential brings the rancid thrill of corruption cracklingly alive."

"Jazzy, stylish, smashing film noir ... with a surprise in every scene."
-Rex Reed, New York Observer
"Expertly written ... rich and clever ... one of the best films of the year."
-Jeffrey Wells, L.A. Times Syndicate
"Terrific entertainment, as funny as it is nasty .... This may be the best noir storytelling since Chinatown."
-David Thomson, Esquire
"An irresistible treat, with enough narrative twists and memorable characters for a half-dozen films .... L.A. Confidentialis an almost overwhelming reminder of the pleasures of deeply involving narratives in the old Hollywood sense."
-Todd McCarthy, Daily Variety
