To Live and Die in LA

Question: Why does Masters torch some of his paintings? Is it a psychological compulsion? Do they not meet his standards?

Question: When Rick Masters is (quite literally) laundering his counterfeit bills, why does he put poker chips in the washing machine with the bills?

Chosen answer: The poker chips give the bills a more realistic texture by striking them while spinning, so they don't look newly made.

Question: What is it with Rick Masters and shooting people in the face? I counted three deaths that way.

Cubs Fan Premium member

Chosen answer: If you want to be reasonably certain of an instant kill, headshots are the way to go.

Answer: Rick can only be implicated in shooting one person in the face, and that is not seen. His henchman shoots two people in the face.

Mistakes

After a long car chase about mid-way through the film, the camera pans over the highway littered with smashed cars and hundreds of cars piled up. In the middle of this, you see a van painted a little like the Partridge Family bus....definately a one of a kind van. Then you see footage of the car which escaped the chase going down an empty side street and passes the same van. No way there are two vans like this one.

Trivia

Real counterfeit bills were printed during principal photography. The prop master got in some hot water for this, even though the bills were created specifically for a scene in which Willem Dafoe burns them in a fireplace.
