Rotten Tomatoes named the best movie of all time

Rotten Tomatoes, a prestigious American resource for collecting movie and television reviews, has named the best movie of all time. The critics gave the highest score to the film L. A. Confidential, which was released 27 years ago.

The resource has compiled a list of the 300 best films in history based on critics' and users' ratings, the number of reviews, and other factors. The list is available on the Rotten Tomatoes website.

The victory of the 1997 detective noir may surprise many people, because this film has not become as famous as the second and third-place winners, The Godfather and Casablanca.

L.A. Confidential tells the story of the "dark side" of the sunny city of the 1950s. Three detectives with different personalities – Wendell "Bud" White (Russell Crowe), Jack Vincennes (Kevin Spacey), and Edmund Exley (Guy Pearce) – investigate a mass murder.

They have to figure out who is behind the conspiracy and prove that the suspects killed in the shooting have nothing to do with the crime.

The film received positive reviews from critics and 9 Oscar nominations, of which it won two – for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress. It is believed that there could have been even more awards if the cult film Titanic had not competed with L.A. Confidential that year.
