Can't agree with this review. Actually, Ellroy reportedly has disavowed the changes to the script made by Moverman. Also, contrary to what this movie implies, racism and "homophobia" had nothing to do with the Rampart scandal, which actually involved black and Latino officers more than white cops. Hence, Moverman lays on the PC content pretty thick here to produce a shallow story that reveals little if anything about the human condition. Unless, of course, you see everything through a PC lens already.
