We end our little tour of L.A.’s crooked, law-breaking onscreen past with the rare tale of a bad guy who found spiritual redemption at the end of his movie. After surviving a deadly shootout, Samuel L. Jackson’s low-rent Los Angeles hit man Jules Winnfield decides to give up the gun and devote his life to God. Guess some criminal Angelenos can end up angelic.Got a favorite L.A.-based movie, crime or otherwise? Tell us below!
great list - nice to see some unexpected films here too, like Eastwood's under-rated "changeling"
My top five: 1) Sunset Blvd 2) LA Confidential 3) Chinatown 4) Training Day 5) Mulholland Drive. Great piece Fandango and Harrison! I was reminded of some excellent films that I need to revisit.
My favorites from the list were:
LA Confidential, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Training Day. I enjoyed the Big Sleep and Heat as well.
Beverly Hills Cop?
