Have this article read to you, listen to it like a podcast

Our Friedkin Weekend series hits the ground running with a vengeance in his stylized 1985 thriller, To Live and Die in L.A.

When his longtime partner on the force is killed, reckless U.S. Secret Service agent Richard Chance (William L. Petersen) vows revenge, setting out to nab dangerous counterfeit artist Eric Masters (Willem Dafoe). Along with his new, straitlaced partner, John Vukovich (John Pankow), Chance sets up a scheme to entrap Masters, resulting in the accidental death of an undercover officer. As Chance’s desire for justice becomes an obsession, Vukovich questions the lawless methods he employs.

Photographed by Robby Müller, To Live and Die in L.A. finds Friedkin taking his pulse-pounding thrills to the West Coast.

To Live and Die in L.A. screens starting Friday, September 8th.
Friday, Sep 8th – 8pm
