Synopsis

LA CONFIDENTIAL author James Ellroy surfs the death vibe from the Dallas assassination site of US President John F. Kennedy to the Hollywood intersection where “Black Dahlia” Elizabeth Short’s mutilated corpse was dumped in 1948.


Part procedural, part confessional, FEAST OF DEATH is an uncensored carnival ride through Ellroy’s dark places, conducted in fearless fashion by a teenage sneak thief turned celebrated author of crime books “written in blood, seminal fluid and napalm.” See Ellroy return to the location of his mother’s 1958 rape and murder, which continues to haunt “the Demon Dog of American crime fiction” 50 years after the fact.

See Ellroy on a profane trip down memory lane to the scenes of his boyhood crimes and misdemeanors.

See Ellroy in skull sessions with LAPD cops and journalists as they name a suspect in the unsolved Black Dahlia case.

A hit at the 2001 Toronto Film Festival, FEAST OF DEATH was directed by Vikram Jayanti (producer of WHEN WE WERE KINGS, 1997 Academy Award® for “Best Documentary”) and features an evocative score by Rob Lane (AILEEN: LIFE AND DEATH OF A SERIAL KILLER).
