  1. I was a big James Ellroy addict back in my early 20s and binged on about 3-4 of his books before ODing. I saw the movie LA Confidential before reading the novel, then hated the film after finding out how tame it was in comparison to the gritty source material. I'd love to see a David Fincher take on one of his books, as his movies have the right pace and darkness to them, I'd say. I think I also read White Jazz and Brown's Requiem, both of which I remember enjoying.
