Not defending it, but it's nothing new if you're familiar with the behind the scene antics of Werner Herzog, Stanley Kubrick, Alfred Hitchcock and a slew of others.

I first became aware of this method for Any Given Sunday, when Olive Stone was telling LL Cool J to actually be physically aggressive with co-star Jamie Foxx, which lead to punches being thrown and Foxx being knocked out. I get the intention involved, but that's still bullshit. It's called "acting" for a reason.

As far as the three you mentioned, I've only heard recently that Hitchcock was a creep in that regard, but I haven't heard the specifics of what he did. I'll have to read up on Herzog and Kubrick.
The only other ones that I read about were Bernardo Bertolucci, Norman Mailer, and the guy that made El Topo.

That was Homer Simpson’s house.

Hope this isn't in bad taste, but when it comes to abuse of actors, John Landis will always be the king.

I love his movies, but everything I read about that Twilight Zone incident makes me wonder why he never spent a day in jail.

lol but it was a house that was featured in an 80s film I think. Sixteen Candles, Home Alone? I remember reading a story on it.

Re: I finally saw "To Live and Die in L.A." --WOW!!!

I saw this on Epix.

I think this was on heavy rotation on channel 36 in the 80's and early 90's and that score I think has been played on endless bumpers, promos, and ads. Maybe it was used in car commercials?


It was entertaining and fun to watch

Turturro looks the same in the 80's

Peterson still had some credibility back then before he did that cheesy CSI show.

They don't make movies like this anymore and with almost endless nudity though no need to see Dafoe and the other dude undressing in the locker


RIP Darlanne Fluegel


What a bod

Great movie! Right on the heals of Miami Vice. Boy do I like Michael Mann movies.

It's one of the best films of the 80's. I also own the vinyl of the soundtrack. It's great all around and it was the first movie to coin the phrase "I'm getting too old for this shit" a few years before Lethal Weapon did.

I love this film and most of William Friedkin’s work. I don’t care who he kicks the shit out of.
I watch this and Falling Down before every trip to LA.

Darlanne Fluegel was great as Hunter's partner for two seasons, I think it was. I had forgotten that she had passed away and it was from Alzheimer's. She wasn't even old.

It could be, consider also many other composers during end 80s/beginning of 90s had Chung's same style...it was very in demand in that years...

Falling Down should have received a little more recognition than it did. Way ahead of his time. It would not shock me in the least to see someone remake this film with the cultural climate that we are now in.
Friedkin needs to get off of his high horse and treat people better. I met him at a filmmaker Q&A in Los Angeles and he acted like most people were beneath him.

I just watched Running Scared and recognized her from To Live and Die In LA. I looked her up and found out she passed. A shitty way to go and young.

And some directors don’t give a fuck. Wasn’t there some movie where they rented a house for the film on the promise that it wouldn’t be damaged, and they ended up damaging it anyways?
Glen Haysman, who hired his house out for a fortnight to be used for location filming, said that such was the damage caused to his drive, passers-by "think I'm a gipsy".

He is seeking £100,000 damages from Mrs Rogers Films Ltd, makers of "Flashbacks of a Fool", which stars, was co-produced and was partly bankrolled by Daniel Craig.

The High Court was told that extensive damage was caused to the interior and exterior of the four-bedroom house, mostly to wallpaper and paintwork in the bedrooms, requiring three weeks of remedial work.
https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/cel...mans-home.html

The production company says that they only did £70,000 damage.

One of those Kevin Brownlow documentaries tells the story of a Laurel and Hardy movie trashing the exterior a house, as agreed with the homeowner, only to learn that they had gone to the wrong address.

When she was naked but Fluegel was hotter.

I checked and Friedkins last movie he directed was Killer Joe in 2011.

Hope he is in good health though after reading this article he is probably not happy with the state of the film industry today though he praises Netflix and the quality of shows on TV.
