To Live and Die in LA

“You want bread? Go fuck a baker!” Counterfeiter Willem Dafoe is advised in William Friedkind’s neon-drenched French Connection-style (well, there’s a big car chase in it) escapade. Cracking good stuff, pounding along to an enervating soundtrack from, er, Wang Chung.

    Isn’t the “fuck a baker” line spoken by nominal hero William Petersen to his pet grass Darlanne Fleugel? I always liked how To Live and Die in LA takes the usual the bog standard cop movie cliches and completely turns them on their head.
