2 Fast 2 Forever #101 – To Live and Die in L.A. (1985)
We’re two days away from retirement — and wondering if Shane Black ripped this trope for Lethal Weapon — which means it’s the perfect time to talk about To Live and Die in L.A. First, though, we open the mailbag, smoke a Ferrari, and stop off at Neptune’s Net for a bite to eat. Then, we dive into William Friedkin’s To Live and Die in L.A. to talk about Christmas in the Fastiverse, vengeance as a potential motivating factor for the Family, and claustrophobic car chases. (Movie conversation begins around 35:30.)
