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.
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.
