Australian actors Guy Pearce and Russell Crowe are antagonistic cops whose styles clash, but who find that the separate cases they are trying to solve are actually connected. James Cromwell is their commanding officer.
The strong multi-layered story is consistently compelling and the plot has some unusual twists and surprises. "L.A. Confidential" gets an A. It could be best movie of the year.))
