To Live and Die in L.A. in 35mm!
Part of "Summer of Celluloid"
William Friedkin / 1985, USA
116min / 35mm
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?
