25 From 85: My Favorite Films Of 1985 (25 movies items)

"Two Secret Service agents are hot on the trail of a Master counterfeiter through the corrupted grit of the L.A. underground. With the criminal proving to be elusive, the agents start participating in activities that will put their badges and their police codes into jeopardy. Directed by William Friedkin, To Live And Die In L.A. is a police story that winds and weaves through the path of compromised processes and whatever-it-takes tactics that can lead to the kind of in-department corruption "

Film Journal - May, 2014 (71 movies items)

" A dark and gritty crime film, with very little grey center. It's one favorite film, from the 80's, very much underrated, and has a really great soundtrack. "

"5.4. Haluaisin tavallaan rakastua To Live and Die in L.A.:n jokaiseen ruutuun, koska kasarimpaa kyttätrilleriä saa oikeasti hakea. Aivan timanttisen soundtrackin ja mielettömästi valaistun kuvauksen synteesiä voisi ihailla vaikka kuinka kauan, ja jotkut kohtaukset vetävät cooliuden niin äärimmilleen, että tapitin niitä aivan innoissani. Pidän ilman muuta päähenkilöiden toilailuista sekä Willem Dafoen olemuksesta, ja onhan tämä selkeää pohjustusta Mannin Manhunterin teemoille"

Completely Underrated Films (178 movies items)

"The cover looks stupid, the back reads lame, it looks like it has nothing going for it besides the william friedken direction. you would be wrong. so wrong. this is a vicious slow burn. Read confession of a counterfeiter as a companion piece. it is right on the button. so good. so hardcore. so badass. and watch, everytime there is a fight, the first thing someone does is kick the other guy in the nuts. every time.

"Katsottu: 1.1.2014 DVD:ltä William Friedkinin (Manaaja) ohjaamassa poliisielokuvassa FBI-agentti Richard Chance (William L. Petersen) alkaa jahdata rahanväärentäjä Rick Mastersia (Willem Dafoe), joka tappoi hänen parinsa vain paria päivää ennen tämän eläkettä. Chance aikoo saada Mastersin kiinni keinolla millä hyvänsä, mistä hänen uusi parinsa, rehti John Vukovich (John Pankow) ei pidä. Petyin vähän tähän, koska oli aika kehuttu ja trailerin perusteella tämä vaikutti j"

"August 18 "He's a lying son of a bitch! He's probably the motherfucker who did me. He ratted me to the feds. I'll kill him when I get out! I'm gonna give that fuckin' scumbag a serious headache. May God strike me dead if I don't waste him." This was a really awesome movie. It had great dialogue, the music was awesome and Willem Dafoe an actor who rarely had amazing performances in my opinion manages to pull off a great performance. It has an 8.5 contacts rating and after seeing it, I can see"

Filmsite's Greatest Chase Scenes in Film History (83 movies items)

"In one of William Friedkin's greatest films, a most- and well-remembered car stunt and chase sequence was the one in which undercover US Treasury Secret Agent Richard Chance (William L. Petersen before CSI) drove his tan Chevrolet up LA's 710 freeway exit ramp directly into multiple lanes of oncoming traffic - and at top-speed near-missed every one of them - yet caused the jack-knifing of a tractor-trailer! (One astonishing shot was an over-the-shoulder driver's POV shot of the entire freeway, "
