Based on the best-selling novel by James Ellroy, this award-winning crime drama explores corruption of the 1950's Los Angeles police force and the sleazy world of organized crime. Dudley Smith (James Cromwell) is the head of the LAPD, Bud White (Russell Crowe) is an aggressive, cynical detective. Ed Exley (Guy Pearce) is a detective who plays it strictly by-the-book and Jack Vincennes (Kevin Spacey) is a flashy "Hollywood" detective who receives kickbacks from Sid Hudgeons (Danny DeVito), publisher of a scandal magazine in exchange for information on celebrities. During a multiple murder investigation, they find themselves caught up in politcal corruption, violence and betrayal. Kim Basinger's performance earned her an academy award for Best Supporting Actress. Curtis Hanson cast Russell Crowe after seeing his performance in Romper Stomper. Studio execs were adamantly against the idea of casting two non-Americans (Crowe and Pearce) in an American period piece - both Pearce and Crowe are Australian. More Info >

A sprawling epic of family, faith, power and oil set on the incendiary frontier of California's turn-of-the-century petroleum boom. The story chronicles the life and times of one Daniel Plainview, who transforms himself from a down-and-out silver miner raising a son on his own into a self-made oil tycoon. When Plainview gets a mysterious tip-off that there's a little town out west where an ocean of oil is oozing out of the ground, he heads with his son, HW, to take their chances in dust-worn Little Boston. In this hardscrabble town, where the main excitement centres around the holy roller church of charismatic preacher Eli Sunday, Plainview and HW make their lucky strike. However, even as the well raises all of their fortunes, nothing will remain the same as conflicts escalate and every human value, from love, hope, community, belief, ambition and even the bond between father and son, is imperilled by corruption, deception and the flow of oil.

After everything in her life falls to pieces, including her marriage to wealthy businessman Hal, elegant New York socialite Jasmine moves into her sister Ginger's modest apartment in San Francisco to try to pull herself back together again. Jasmine arrives in San Francisco in a fragile mental state, her head reeling from the cocktail of anti-depressants she's on. While still able to project her aristocratic bearing, Jasmine is emotionally precarious and lacks any practical ability to support herself. She disapproves of Ginger's boyfriend Chili, who she considers another "loser" like Ginger's ex-husband Augie. Ginger, recognising but not fully understanding her sister's psychological instability, suggests that she pursue interior design, a career she correctly intuits that Jasmine won't feel is beneath her. In the meantime, Jasmine begrudgingly accepts work as the receptionist in a dentist's office, where she attracts the unwanted attentions of her boss, Dr Flicker. Feeling that her sister might be right about her poor taste in men, Ginger starts seeing Al, a sound engineer whom she considers as a step up from Chili. Jasmine sees a potential lifeline when she meets Dwight, a diplomat who is quickly smitten with her beauty, sophistication and style. Jasmine's flaw is that she derives her worth from the way she's perceived by others, while she herself is blind to what is going around her. Jasmine earns our compassion because she is the unwitting instrument of her own downfall. This film is about the dire consequences that can result when people avert their eyes from reality and the truth they don't want to see.

Set in New Orleans, from the end of World War I in 1918 into the 21st century, we follow his journey that is as unusual as any man's life can be. This is a grand tale of a not-so-ordinary man and the people and places he discovers along the way, the loves he finds, the joys of life and the sadness of death, and what lasts beyond time.

L.A. Confidential
 
 
Based on the best-selling novel by James Ellroy, this award-winning crime drama explores corruption of the 1950's Los Angeles police force and the sleazy world of organized crime. Dudley Smith (James Cromwell) is the head of the LAPD, Bud White (Russell Crowe) is an aggressive, cynical detective. Ed Exley (Guy Pearce) is a detective who plays it strictly by-the-book and Jack Vincennes (Kevin Spacey) is a flashy "Hollywood" detective who receives kickbacks from Sid Hudgeons (Danny DeVito), publisher of a scandal magazine in exchange for information on celebrities. During a multiple murder investigation, they find themselves caught up in politcal corruption, violence and betrayal. Kim Basinger's performance earned her an academy award for Best Supporting Actress. Curtis Hanson cast Russell Crowe after seeing his performance in Romper Stomper. Studio execs were adamantly against the idea of casting two non-Americans (Crowe and Pearce) in an American period piece - both Pearce and Crowe are Australian. More Info >
