DESTROYER AND L.A. NOIR
Double Feature! Director William Friedkin In Person!
TO LIVE & DIE IN L.A. / CUTTER'S WAY
Discussion between films with TO LIVE & DIE IN L.A. director William Friedkin, moderated by DESTROYER director Karyn Kusama.
TO LIVE & DIE IN L.A.
1985, Park Circus/MGM, 116 min, Dir: William Friedkin

Director William Friedkin's startling, exhilarating thriller stars William Petersen as a hot-shot federal agent out to bust ruthless counterfeiter Willem Dafoe (in a revelatory, tour-de-force performance). Along the way, they collide with John Turturro as a drug mule addicted to Pepto-Bismol and Dean Stockwell as Dafoe's morally ambivalent mouthpiece. As dynamic and unnerving as THE FRENCH CONNECTION a decade earlier, TO LIVE AND DIE IN L.A. is Friedkin at his very best - a turbo-charged ride through an imploding, morally corrupt American landscape.


CUTTER'S WAY
1981, Park Circus/MGM, 105 min, Dir: Ivan Passer

When Richard Bone (Jeff Bridges) spots a guy dumping something in a garbage can on a rainy night, he doesn’t think much of it – until he learns that a murder took place in the same area. When Bone is placed at the scene and becomes a suspect, he and his friend Alex Cutter (John Heard) try to solve the crime, but find themselves awash in conspiracy theories and moral ambiguities.
