Woody Harrelson gives a searing performance in this modern noir as a cop working the streets of the title Los Angeles district, a notoriously corrupt place where his instincts for self-preservation seem to serve him well─until he is videotaped beating a suspect. As the law closes in, his racist and sexist tendencies come to the fore and threaten to destroy not just his career, but his entire life. Co-written by James Ellroy; Ice Cube, Robin Wright, Anne Heche, and Sigourney Weaver co-star. 107 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
