January 9, 2017Posted by on
Lee and Daniel start off 2017 by looking at Curtis Hanson’s epic 1950s crime picture “L.A. Confidential” (1997). A lot of time is spent talking about the characters, the way the action is shot, and if the film is a truly a noir or not. They also talk about the differences between the film and the James Ellroy novel of the same name, that it was adapted from. Also covered: what they’ve watched as of late (WARNING: there’s some “Rogue One” spoilers) and a good deal of listener comments are read and responded to.
Featured Music: “The Victor” by Jerry Goldsmith & “The Wheel Of Fortune” by Kay Starr.
