Critic Reviews of "To Live and Die in L.A."VarietyOctober 29, 2008
Engrossing and diverting enough on a moment-to-moment basis but is overtooled.Time OutJune 24, 2006
Friedkin plays it as brutal and cynical as he ever did with The French Connection...New York TimesMay 20, 2003
On its own terms, it's a considerable success, though it's a film that sacrifices everything in the interests of style.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
The film isn't just about cops and robbers, but about two systems of doing business, and how one of the systems finds a way to change itself in order to defeat the other.7M PicturesJuly 31, 2012
The film is cheesy as hell but it is a ton of fun for someone who remembered how this passed as uber-edgy back in the day.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsMarch 25, 2011
The action thrives on overkill.Antagony & EcstasyFebruary 22, 2011
A profoundly ambivalent motion picture... completely upends every convention of its hidebound genre without even seeming to notice that it has done so.Seanax.comFebruary 17, 2010
[William] Friedkin creates a jittery atmosphere of adrenaline and corruption and danger...Combustible CelluloidSeptember 15, 2007
Friedkin's 1985 film To Live and Die in L.A. may be one of his very best, though it did not reach the level of acclaim and support of his earlier films.Fantastica DailyOctober 08, 2005
William Friedkin returned to form with this tough, stylish and gutsy crime thriller enhanced by one of the great soundtracks of the 1980s.Reel Film ReviewsJanuary 13, 2004
To Live and Die in L.A. is undeniably very well made - from the performances to the more technical aspects - but the bottom line is, it's just not all that compelling.Creative LoafingDecember 10, 2003
There's not much substance here, but the film ... showcases a grabber of a car chase that compares favorably with the classic one from Friedkin's The French Connection.
