04.25.05DVR Caught this on showtime and gave it another viewing. For an Ellroy fan it's really great... the narrative shuffles between Ellroy's mom, and the black dahlia through voice-over readings from his book My Dark Places, a filmed dinner between a bunch of old wisened cops at Pacific Dining Car, and interviews with Bill Stoner along with everyone else with a visit to the Wisconsin Hillikers, a book signing, a night-time prowl through LA, and a visit to Dealy Plaza thrown in for good measure. I have another Ellroy documentary on VHS and this one pretty much blows it out of the water. It's really well done and goes into some great detail with both his mother's and the dahlia's deaths. For an Ellroy fan like me, this is a great watch.
