To Live And Die In LA

I've been waiting for To Live and Die in L.A. to come out on DVD, and now it appears that my wait is over. It's on often overlooked film from William Friedken (The French Connection and The Exorcist) staring William Peterson (CSI) and William Willem Dafoe (Platoon). It's been so long since I first saw it; I can hardly remember how to describe it without completely plagiarizing other reviews. I was completely blown away by the movie when I saw it in the theaters, but the film has faded into obscurity. Way back when NetFlix first started we mounted a small campaign to get the film released on DVD, but that went nowhere.

In case you are wondering what you can get your favorite blogger for Christmas, it's on my Amazon Wishlist.

It was the first movie after my son was born, around Thanksgiving 1985. What a fantastic movie. And lets not forget Mr. Petersen in another underrated movie--Michael Mann's Manhunter. That was the original Hannibal Lecter movie and still the best (I refuse to see the remake).

Love that movie. (Don't forget John Turturro's bit in it.) It's great news that the wait is over for the DVD, although I suppose I'll have to "ebay" my 3 younguns before I can watch it at home.
