L.A. Confidential (1997) - Episode 33
This is the City of the Angels, and you haven't got any wings. Our first listener-chosen episode sees Gali, Devlin, Patrick and Matt delve into the seamy tail end of the Hollywood Golden Age with Curtis Hanson’s 1997 neo-noir L.A. Confidential.
Straight arrow 2nd generation LAPD Sgt. Ed Exley (Guy Pearce) finds himself embroiled with hot-tempered heavy Officer Bud White (Russell Crowe) and jaded, status obsessed Sgt. Jack Vincennes (Kevin Spacey) in a sprawling investigation that takes in murder, prostitution, and political scandal, where allegiances, ambition, power and morality come in to question.
The gang discuss 90s plot twists, ensemble casts, noir tropes and, surprisingly, James Cameron’s ego in an episode that’s off the record, on the QT, and very hush-hush. Shout out to our listener Oli (@Remedi_RPM) for the recommendation!
