L.A. CONFIDENTIAL SE Hits the Street 9/23

Modern film noir fans have something to look forward to on September 23. That's when Warner Home Video will release their new 2-disc special edition of director Curtis Hanson's masterful 1997 crime drama L.A. CONFIDENTIAL. Hardboiled, action-packed, and thoroughly riveting, the film ranks in the estimation of many as the equal of Roman Polanski's classic CHINATOWN in giving the dark fascination of the old Hollywood noir thrillers a modern touch while still retaining the aura of the originals.

The list price for this special edition is $20.97, but Amazon is offering it at $14.99, which has a much nicer ring to it. Also available in Blu-ray (SRP $28.99) L.A. CONFIDENTIAL SE promises the following bonus features:
