To Live and Die in L.A.
DIRECTOR: WILLIAM FRIEDKIN
CAST: WILLIAM PETERSON, WILLEM DAFOE, JOHN PANKOW, JOHN TURTURRO
Adrenaline-junkie Secret Service agent William Petersen and partner John Pankow are looking to bring down Willem Dafoe’s funny money-making gallery sophisticate, even if it means driving full speed into oncoming traffic to do it. From its pumped-up overture opening which depicts the counterfeiter’s art over Wang Chung’s slammin’ synth soundtrack to its still-shocking last act shift of narrative focus, To Live and Die in L.A. is Friedkin at his pedal-to-the-metal nest throughout.
To Live and Die in L.A. is screening as part of the series William Friedkin.
