Sepia-Tone LAPD

Jennifer Connelly
I watched Mulholland Falls (1996) last night and not just because of Jennifer Connelly's pneumatic performance. I like movies with a sepia-toned Los Angeles Police Department. I like True Confessions (1981) and, of course, L.A. Confidential (1997), too. I hadn't really been impressed with Mulholland Falls when I first saw it, but this return viewing (I think it's my third) was very enjoyable.

. . .and I liked the ending, too.

That picture of Jennifer Connely is great! Her dress in that one is gorgeous.

I didn't like this one much with my first viewing either, but do enjoy it now.

I totally forgot she was in this movie- she looks soooo much different now. I will have to watch it again soon as it has been forever since I've seen it.

It's underrated, and a fine reminder of why Jennifer C originally stood out.
