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 finest throughout.
To Live and Die in L.A. is screening as part of the series William Friedkin.
At the request of the filmmaker, we are showing To Live and Die in L.A. on DCP.
