Sight and Sound - 09/01/1996
"...Nick Nolte is perfect..."
Entertainment Weekly - 08/23/1996
"...[Malkovich is] the most perversely intriguing thing in the movie. A pleasantly diverting CHINATOWN knockoff..."
Variety - 04/22/1996
"...Loaded with talent on both sides of the camera....Malkovich weighs in with another eccentric characterization..."
New York Times - 04/26/1996
"...Mr. Nolte gives an especially solid performance....[Ms. Griffith gives] an unusually acute performance..."
Los Angeles Times - 04/26/1996

Description by OLDIES.com:

In the brutal war against murder and corruption, there's one place where the battles are won. Nick Nolte, Melanie Griffith, Chazz Palminteri, Michael Madsen, Chris Penn, Treat Williams, Jennifer Connelly, Andrew McCarthy and John Malkovich star in Mulholland Falls, a brilliant, high-powered crime thriller electrified by hard-hitting action, forbidden passion and shocking intrigue. In 1950s Los Angeles, Max Hoover (Nolte) leads an elite squad of four detectives who play by their own rules, dealing with criminals the only way they know howwith deadly force. But when they investigate the murder of a beautiful young woman (Connelly), the detectives find themselves embroiled in a high-level conspiracy and faced with a terrifying secret that the US government is determined to keep hiddenat any price.

Product Description:

The murder of a well-connected seductress swings the true-life maverick 1950's L.A. police unit known as the "Hat Squad" into action in this atmospheric thriller. Unconcerned with protocol, this group of tough cops makes up their own rules, but when one of them is implicated in the murder they may be faced with more than they can handle.

Plot Synopsis:

Based on a real-life team of LAPD cops known as the "Hat Squad" (for their penchant for fancy headgear), "Mulholland Falls" is set in the 1950s and follows the exploits of four macho detectives. Led by Max Hoover, the dicks investigate the death of young, beautiful Allison Pond, with whom the married Max recently had an affair. The trail leads to a number of higher-ups in the military, forcing a nervous J. Edgar Hoover to apply pressure on them to stay off the case. Making matters worse are some steamy home movies featuring Max and Allison -- that mysteriously end up in the hands of Max's wife...
