1997, 20th Century Fox, 138 min, USA, Dir: Curtis Hanson

Director Curtis Hanson brings James Ellroy’s epic, muckraking crime novel to vivid life, zeroing in on a racially charged murder case, media scandal-mongering and police corruption in 1950s Los Angeles. A white-hot ensemble cast sets off the fireworks, including Russell Crowe, Guy Pearce, Kevin Spacey, James Cromwell, Danny DeVito and Kim Basinger, who won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her Veronica Lake-inspired performance. The rare book-to-movie adaptation that distills a novel’s sprawling grandeur into a devastating knockout punch.


Special Ticket Prices: $15 General, $13 Cinematheque Members. No vouchers. Sponsored by Warner Archive, the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles, Hoccomocco Pictures/Thin Ice, Sweeney Todd's Barber Shop, Hollywood Heritage and William M. Paparian, Attorney at Law.
