Three detectives in the corrupt and brutal L.A. police force of the 1950s use differing methods to uncover a conspiracy behind the shotgun slayings of the patrons at an all-night diner in this lush tribute to tough film noir crime films. Based on the multi-layered James Ellroy novel.

Movie Parental Guide

nudity 7/10 As an officer making an arrest enters a house a women's breasts are briefly seen for a split second. A main character is a prostitute. A man and woman kiss passionately.
violence 8/10 One character is something of a loose cannon and violence usually occurs around him. There are some gunshot murders and a pile of very bloody bodies in a bathroom. One man is shot in the heart at close range and dies quickly. We see blood spurt out. A man is seen dead on the ground with his throat slit. A man is seen in a chair with his wrists slit and two of his fingers broken. Several gunshot sequences resulting in death and violence. When someone is shot blood mist sprays and splatters on the surroundings and blood pours from the wound. In a bloody sequence, two men shoot at another group of men with shotguns. One is hit in the chest with a bloody wound spewing blood, a shotgun wielding man is shot several times which results in blood spray, another man is shot with a shotgun splattering blood and blood smoke. A group of men are beaten in jail by police officers. A newspaper story is shown with such a photo. Several scenes of police interrogation sessions, and the people being interrogated are often beaten with a belt by Russell Crowe's character.
profanity 24 uses of "fuck" (mainly by Russell Crowe's character), 10 uses of "shit", 3 uses of "whores", 3 uses of "screw", 3 uses of "hell", 3 uses of "goddamn", 2 uses of "bullshit", 2 uses of "ass", 2 uses of "bastard", 2 uses of "Jesus", 2 uses of "Christ", 1 use of "jerk-off", 1 use of "prick", and 1 use of "dykes". Some uses of older language like "Negroes", "queer", "homo", and "swishy".
alcohol 7/10 There are scenes where drugs are visible, but not used.
frightening 7/10 There's a seedy tone pervading much of the film, and the violence can be rather gritty in nature. The beating, the abrupt kill-shot, and the climactic shoot-out are all fairly intense.
