To Live and Die in L.A. (1985)
Directed by William Friedkin and starring William Petersen, Willem Dafoe and John Turturro.
In my opinion, this is a quintessential '80s movie.

It's a very gritty, violent, no-nonsense cop movie. The violence is very realistic, but not gratuitous. It's a movie with depth, in which every character proves to be immoral in the end.
Also, it has one of the best car chase scenes in movie history.
The soundtrack is done by Wang Chung (known from hits like Dance Hall Days). It's great and very eighties.
If you like the work of Michael Mann (who sued Friedkin for plagiarizing Miami Vice), you should definitely check this one out.
