Police Beat Reviews
Z's girlfriend takes off on a camping trip with a friend (male) for a couple days, that turns into weeks. Z doesn't like camping.
While she is gone, Z rambles through multiple and disturbing crimes (drawn from real police files in Seattle). All the while, Z's imagination runs rampant on the possibility of his girlfriends loyalty to their romance. Meanwhile, Z's bicycle cop partner shots up drugs and lusts for a street prostitute. "I don't even use a condom because whatever she has, I want it too." says his partner.
The film is in English, but Z's thoughts are in his native language of Wolof and subtitled. It makes for an eerie and surreal film that slowly engulfs you into its ebb and flow from the shocking crimes to the soulful longing of Z for his love.
