I've talked about how much I love The Art of the Title Sequence before, a while ago I made a list of my personal favorites and this is another. L.A. Confidential is one of my favorite books and it's also one of the best book to film adaptations I've seen done. The actors were spot on and even though things were changed plot-wise, they were changed in a way that made sense. The book is 480 pages long (well my edition is I'm sure they vary) and it spans nearly a decade. The story had to be cut down in order to make an entertaining film. The opening sequence fills you in on several plot points and captures the mood of the film perfectly. I didn't use the entire sequence because I made the screencaps myself and older films are harder to work with but these are some of my favorite shots.

If you haven't seen this film I would definitely recommend it. It's entertaining and has a nice twist ending, Kevin Spacey does an amazing job. I would also recommend the book. I only started reading James Ellroy last year but he's already one of my favorite authors. He has a way of perfectly capturing a time-period and setting. The book starts off at a slow burn but the story is so detailed and complex that it really pays off in the end. Anyway, onto the picspam!



Off the record, on the QT, and very hush-hush.Collapse )

Due to my recent obsession with The Art of the Title Sequence I have been going through my dvd collection trying to see which opening sequences I liked best and this one came up! Funny Face is not my favorite Audrey Hepburn film but it is cute and the title sequence is really pretty. So naturally I made a mini-picspam of it!
