To Live and Die in L.A. (1985)
Friday 21st October 2016
In the seventies William Friedkin made The French Connection, The Exorcist and Sorcerer. In the eighties he equalled them with To Live and Die in L.A., one of the most stylish thrillers the decade had to offer.
When his partner is murdered just days before retirement, Secret Service Agent Richard Chance (William Petersen, Manhunter) begins an obsessive hunt for his killer - counterfeiter and all-round psychopath Eric Masters, played by Willem Dafoe at his villainous prime.
Beautifully shot by Robby Muller (Repo Man, Paris, Texas) and with a driving score with British new wave act Wang Chung, To Live and Die in L.A., released on dual-format DVD and Blu-ray on 21st November 2016, courtesy of Arrow Films, looks and sounds exceptional in this brand-new 4K restoration from the original 35mm negative.
