A Cop Movie (2021) Camden International Film Festival

This is the story of two police officers in Mexico city that is tols through documentary, recreation and impressionistic passages.

This intriguing documentary melds a straight forward approach with something else. Its an attempt to make physical the feel and head space of what it’s like to be a cop. We don’t just see the tasks of the job but see the reactions of the public and other officers. We get to know what the officers really feel.

I liked this film a great deal but to be completely honest I need to see the film. Because of scheduling issues I had one pass through the film, which bothered me because I was half way into the film before it clicked. Its all my fault, I thought the film was going to be something different than it was and as a result I didn’t give it a completely fair shake. I really need…nay want to see it again.
