"Searing Action, Nonstop Powerful… A Superbly Realized Film." – The Hollywood Reporter
William Petersen (Manhunter) and Willem Dafoe (John Wick) face off in a deadly game of cat and mouse in this "riveting" (The New York Times) action-thriller from the Oscar-winning director of The French Connection. This raw tale of corruption and revenge features one of the most harrowing car chases ever caught on film and a shockingly explosive ending.
Federal agent Richard Chance (Petersen) has a score to settle, and he's through playing by the rules. Whether that means blackmailing a beautiful parolee, disobeying direct orders or hurtling the wrong way down a crowded freeway, he vows to take down a murderous counterfeiter (Dafoe) by any means necessary. But as the stakes grow higher, will chance's obsession with vengeance ultimately destroy him?
Why We Love It
“William Friedkin’s neon-hued noir To Live and Die in L.A. gets a vibrant 4K transfer and a slate of solid new extras from Shout! Factory.” – Budd Wilkins, Slant Magazine
“Highly recommended.” – Jeffrey Kauffman, Blu-ray.com
“Shout Select continues its excellence with an outstanding release of one of William Friedkin’s best (Top 5 for me of his). To Live and Die In L.A. is a superb crime drama with all the balls and thrills that Friedkin put into The French Connection back in the 1970s. This Blu-ray from Shout gives quite an astonishing new image for it as well as a fun impactful audio mix. It also compounds on the already terrific extras that were available previously. This is an EASY upgrade for those who have the previous one and a must own if you don’t already have it.” – Brandon Peters, Why So Blu
