Scenes to Remember (31 movies items)

"19. The Counterfeit Montage In 'The French Connection' director William Friedkin gave us an intriguing glimpse into police work with the scene where Gene Hackman and Roy Scheider tore down an entire car to find a few bags of drugs. This time around, in 'To Live and Die in L.A.' it was the thug's turn. Friedkin basically turned counterfeiting money into an action scene with its brisk editing and Wang Chung's fast, energetic instrumentals. It's like something you'd expect from Hot Fuzz. How ac"

Interesting film facts (393 movies items)

"The freeway car chase was filmed with the traffic flowing backwards. While Chance and Vukovich appear to be driving against traffic, they are in fact going in the proper direction for the U.S.; it is the rest of traffic that's moving on the wrong side of the road (Chance drives on the right side of the road, but the traffic is driving on the left). This was done to increase tension for the audience. William Friedkin specifically asked Wang Chung to NOT do a song titled "To Live and Die in LA," "

"29.7, Rewatch ***½-****½ Yllätti uudelleenvahtaamisen myötä, kuinka hyvä tämä olikaan. Elokuva rullaa ettenpäin sopivalla temmolla. Henkilöistä kaikki saavat tarinan kannalta sopivasti syvyyttä ja näitä näyttelevät henkilöt ovat kaikki aivan huippuvireessä. Realistinen toiminta ja yksi parhaista koskaan nähdyistä auto takaa-ajoista tekevät tästä onnistuneen myös jännityksen saralla. Ei näin hyviä jännäreitä osata enää tehdä. Toisin oli silloin."

My movie year 2012 (703 movies items)

"DVD Oolrait (kaikki kunnossa): minä saan omituista väreilyä 80-luvusta, kasarista - sen musiikista, pukeutumistyylistä, neonvaloista jne. Pidän Los Angelesia ulkonäöllisesti kauniina kaupunkina, enkä valita mukaansatempaavien toimintaelokuvien parissa tai liiemmin marmata edukseen kääntyvästä tahattomasta komiikastakaan. Elää ja kuolla LA:ssa yhdistelee näitä kaikkia elementtejä nerokkaan typerästi ja superviihdyttävästi. Välistä filmin idioottimaisuuksille ja kliseille "

"23.3. DVD. Uusintakatselu. Ei muutoksia."

Watched in 2012 (408 movies items)

"23.3 DVD Rewatch En ole varma kuinka mones uusintakatselu, mutta edelleen ihan yhtä kovaa kamaa. Sisältää ehkä pientä spoileria: Juoni on moneen kertaan nähty - kytän partneri tapetaan ja kyttä lähtee jahtaamaan tappajaa - mutta Friedkin on saanut näinkin tavallisista lähtökohdista täysin omaperäisen näkemyksen. Koko elokuvan ajan taustalla kiehuu hyvin omituinen ja kuumottava tunnelma. Osa kiitos menee Robby Müllerin kuvauksen ja syntikkascoren yhdistykseen. William Petersen"
