Precinct Seven Five (2014)


Tiller Russell directs this documentary looking at extreme cop corruption in 1980’s Brooklyn.

The sheer amorality of the talking heads interviewed here is what makes this stand out. There’s very little “Poor me! I got caught! Boo Hoo!” and a lot of creepy enthusiasm and nostalgia for just how dirty these retired scumbags were. The director recreates their time and escapades vividly. The fact he gives them enough rope to confidently express their relish at themselves is like nothing you have ever seen on film.
