115 minutes — 18A, 35mm, José Padilha, Brazil, 2011
Director Padilha’s (Bus 174) story of a cop taking on an overwhelmingly corrupt system packs “an entire season’s worth of The Wire’s dirty cops, self-serving politicians, serpentine plotting, and gruesome, wasteful collateral damage into just under two hours.” (Village Voice) Action packed and politically divisive, this film is as important as it is entertaining.
