Adapted from James Ellroy's neo-noir novel, the best American film of 1997 evokes a glitzy post-World War II Los Angeles underpinned by an all-pervasive, festering corruption. An intricate, drop-dead brilliant plot links bent cops, good cops, Hollywood star lookalike prostitutes and the mob. The dialogue crackles and the actors burn up the screen: this is one of the few films one would dare mention in the same breath as the definitive 'Chinatown'.
