Editorial Reviews

Iconic and bestselling author James Ellroy, the demon dog of American literature who penned Black Dahliaand LA Confidential, takes a fresh look at some of Hollywood's most notorious stories from the past to the present. JAMES ELLROY'S LA: CITY OF DEMONS showcases Ellroy's larger-than-life personality and his unforgettable verbal style as he exposes the dirt behind the silver screen. These are the tales of Hollywood's power players - stars on the big screen, but
criminals behind closed doors. Ellroy brings these stories to life as only he can, conducting in-depth interviews with witnesses, prosecutors, investigators and jurors.

If you've only read James Ellroy's crime novels, you've been missing out on the eccentric persona behind the pages. Perhaps a little Ellroy will go a long way--he's a bit of a love it or hate it proposition. Having been a successful writer for thirty years, he has a fascination with the dark side and his obsession invariably led to "L. A.: City of Demons"--an original documentary series for the Investigation Discovery network (admit it, you spend hours perusing ID). Ellroy has an inherent fascination with the underbelly of Los Angeles which began with the brutal slaying of his mother and is showcased in some of his most noteworthy books (Black Dahlia, L. A. Confidential). With his larger-than-life personality in full affect and his offbeat verbal stylings in unique form, Ellroy actually kicks off this six episode production with a feature that includes his mother's murder.

His potboiler style, nihilism, and noir conventions actually align fairly well with the stories he wishes to share in this series. This probably won't be used as promotional material by the Los Angeles Department of Tourism any time soon.

(1) Dead Women Own Me: Ellroy explores cases that have had a real impact on his life and psyche including the aforementioned Black Dahlia and his mother's case.
(2) The Scandal Rags: Explores the pulp publications that made notoriety with high profile stories such as the Lana Turner scandal.
(3) L. A. Serial Killers: Seems self-explanatory.
(4) Dames and Delinquents: Exposes notorious cases that involve organized crime including the murder of a famed mob princess.
(5) The Dark Side of Hollywood: A look at celebrity culture.
(6) Hot Spot Homicide: A profile on notorious bars, clubs and prohibition era speakeasies.

You have to love James Ellroy to appreciate this set of DVDs - both my husband and I do. I really enjoyed watching the stories he covers in each episode. Plus, the set includes episodes that never aired on TV. The sidekick dog is annoying at times but Ellroy is terrific.

No one on the planet is a bigger James Ellroy fan, but this series is a disappointment. First off, there is too much Ellroy - a statement that I never thought that I would say, but he just gets in the way of the material all of the time. And I won't even mention the @#$%^&* dog! And the source material should be great, but becomes secondary to the ego trip Ellroy is on. It starts out amusing but soon become annoying. Sorry James, but you have a personality that comes across better in the written word.
