This is a classic that has not received its due. It is based on a novel by Walter Mosley. The production value is very high and Denzel Washington is outstanding as Mosley’s favorite character, Easy Rawlins. One of the most interesting features of these novels is how they transport you to a minutely detailed and richly described post-World-War-2 Los Angeles and this movie lives up to that expectation. This movie also benefits from a well crafted plot typical of an Easy Rawlings’ mystery: race-centric, violent with a strong narrative structure that draws you into it. // if you are a fan of film noirs or Hitchcock you will enjoy this plot... it has both. A trip to the underbelly of society mixed with an ordinary man who is pushed into extraordinary circumstances by necessity and chance. // I strongly recommend the movie.
