  1. To Live and Die in LA is a great movie. It is like that unknown band you liked before they made it big. I use many of the lines of that movie in my daily life. "Right there fella" for example. Anyway, I feel so close to that movie. I was living in LA, my mom was dating a guy who "made money" and went to prison for it. When he was introduced as "a printer" I thought he did something with books or magazines. I remember seeing his printing machine, was exactly like the one in the movie. DaFoe was amazing as a bad guy, I can see why he would be concerned about being type-cast, especially since he was so young back then. One scene where he starts laughing as the scene trails off and ends, I swear he was really laughing at something and thought the scene was over – it was just so authentic. I still remember the bomber jacket his "muscle" guy wore. Whatever you do, make sure you don't watch the alternate ending, before you watch the real movie. OMG! As much as love the movie, and the main ending is a little vague and confusing(by design), I hate that fake alt ending, and of course, Mr. Friedkin did too. You can totally tell he was forced to make it by the studio. I am so happy that DaFoe has had an amazing career, but he will always be super-cool-bad-guy, Rick Masters, to me.
