09 Nov, 2012 | Movies To See Before You Die / Thrillers

If you love watching fast paced bold thrillers with impressive sequences coming one after another without any lazy scenes hampering its engaging momentum then L.A. CONFIDENTIAL is surely going to be one of the Top 10 movies you have seen till date in this particular genre. Rated as one of the best Crime Thrillers ever made by critiques all over the world, this is a film with a perfectly balanced script supported by some brilliant performances by talented actors such as Kevin Spacey, Russel Crowe, Guy Pearce and Kim Basinger. It was nominated in 9 major categories at the OSCARS and won two out of it in the year 1998 including one for the Best Actress in a Supporting Role deservingly given to Kim Basinger.
As an indication towards the superlative content the film has, just check out its two official tag lines which precisely describe the experience of watching L.A. CONFIDENTIAL in these carefully selective words as given below:
“It’s a crime saga that will shock you. It’s a mystery that will keep you guessing. It’s a thriller that will keep you riveted” and
“Everything is suspect……everyone is for sale…..and nothing is what it seems.”
Showcasing a complex story-plot involving every single character on the screen, its one of those well directed films which delivers more than the promises made in its impressive taglines. A script which can be easily given to the students of cinema for studying its superbly written story developments and magnificently executed conflicts between its various characters. Talking about the disgusting corruption within the officials themselves, the film is full of interestingly engaging subplots which never give you a single dull moment in its more than two hours of duration. And that is the reason, why you feel like having watched one of the finest works of Cinema in the Crime thriller genre unarguably as the credits start rolling.
But on the darker side, L.A. Confidential may also end-up giving you a sour taste of the society around as it bluntly reveals that there is no-one honest, truthful or reliable any more in this fast progressing world moving towards a dead end. It showcases every single character as an opportunist who is just waiting to take advantage of a given situation for his own benefits without giving it a second thought. Yet, it strongly remains one of the most intelligently written and executed crime thrillers till date which deserves to be seen at the earliest. So do watch it, especially if you love this particular genre of bloody suspenseful crime thrillers waiting to give you the shock.
