Jim and Volkstaadt discuss Friedkin's "To Live and Die in L.A.", an intense, relentless neo-noir film.

The IMDB page: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0090180/

Fun fact I forgot to mention(for those who don't bother clicking through to IMDB): Friedkin insisted on authenticity so they got an actual convicted counterfeiter to show them the process (which is in the movie). The prop money created was so good that some of it got passed around L.A. and the USSS kept finding it, even years later! Friedkin himself admitted to passing the phony bills, for research purposes of course.
