LA Confidential is Terrific

I am sitting here this evening watching LA Confidential on the big screen.  This is a fabulous movie, and its incredible to me that it didn't get more play at the time.  The acting performances are awesome -- ironically I think Kim Bassinger's is the weakest, but she is the only one to get an Oscar for it. The music and mood are fabulous.  It is even more incredible that the nearly unwatchable Titanic could beat it out for best picture Oscar.  If you have never seen it, give it a rent.

    Kim Bassinger has an Oscar?

    Good lord this is one seriously messed up industry.

    People who never won (competitive) Oscars: Charlie Chaplin, Cary Grant, Myrna Loy, Boris Karloff, Peter O'Toole, Robert Mitchum, Claude Rains, Edward G. Robinson, Orson Wells, Richard Burton, Lauren Bacall, Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo, Judy Garland, Lillian Gish, Jean Harlow, and Deborah Kerr.
