Zero considers himself the world's greatest living detective and insists on maintaining his anonymity with clients, sending his loyal, but much-abused associate Steve Arlo (Ben Stiller) to conduct any in-person transactions.

title: Cop Land function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Miramax Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Sylvester Stallone, Harvey Keitel, Ray Liotta, Robert De Niro, Peter Berg, Janeane Garofalo, Robert Patrick, Michael Rapaport, Annabella Sciorra release year: 1997 film rating: Three stars sound/picture: Three stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Don't let Sylvester Stallone's top billing in the title fool you. There is a bit of action in 'Cop Land,' here and there, but there are few pyrotechnics. This police corruption thriller is in fact refreshingly economic (if not the greatest challenge for a home theater system), with a carefully-paced build-up and an intelligent script. For viewers who may feel bludgeoned into resentment (if not something stronger) by some of his other recent offerings, this movie even reminds us that, given decent material, Stallone is a pretty good actor.

title: L.A. Confidential function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: Warner Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Kevin Spacey, Russell Crowe, Guy Pearce, James Cromwell, David Strathairn, Kim Basinger, Danny DeVito release year: 1997 reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Okay, 'Titanic' was the most financially successfully, logistically complicated movie released in 1997. However, the best film of 1997--at least from this perspective--is still 'L.A. Confidential.' You know the magician's stunt of pulling a tablecloth off a table while leaving the plates and cups undisturbed? Director Curtis Hanson and his co-screenwriter Brian Helgeland have managed the same feat in adapting James Ellroy's massive novel into a juicy, intricate and volcanically active thriller populated by riveting characters and terrific performances. The underlying mystery has been changed around, but they've preserved Ellroy's dense, layered style, finding telling details in even minor events and creating a sense of real unpredictability.
