Police Beat Reviews

Film Comment Magazine

Police Beat is an object so gorgeously odd, and so completely at peace with its own oddness, it's hard to compare it to anything else.

Its dreamlike state makes for mesmerizing viewing.

There are great flashes of Mudede's potent prose and the main character is fascinating -- a Sengalese Seattle bike cop who is going through a separation from his girlfriend while witnessing crimes and misdemeanors throughout the city.

As in Mudede's column, the film's pleasures lie in the games it plays with language, in the way Seattle is rendered as a dreamscape both funny and frightening, in the way police work does battle with philosophy.

Police Beat can't quite figure out what it wants to be.

Police Beat looks great, and the performances are solid, but the disparate elements in this oddity -- which created a minor stir at the Sundance Film Festival last year -- never entirely coalesce.

... a delicately funny tale about everyday surrealism.

Dreamlike in style, Police Beat is also a real-world vision of what American indies could be if they dared to recognize the drama in our own neighborhoods.

Experiment in film form is interesting but doesn't quite pay off.

Keith Uhlich
Slant Magazine

All the onscreen transgressions are so tightly packed into the film's 80 minutes that they play as increasingly ludicrous and unbelievable examples of community unrest.
