An Analysis of L.A. Confidential

- Although not entirely uncritical in its portrayal of race, L.A. Confidential further cements white as the “invisible norm” in film.

Furthermore, its stereotypical representations of minorities sabotage any chance the film had to offer criticism of white hegemony in either its historical setting, 1950s Los Angeles, the late ’90s world in which it was made, or the universe of noir film....   [tags: Police Corruption 2014]

However, between the stone throwing of the Intefada and the rubber bullets of the Israeli Army, moral courage and human righteousness shine through....   [tags: Israeli Palestinian Conflict]
