Tilting between social satire and pitch-black drama with unnerving ease, Cory Bowles's feature debut Black Cop is an intriguing high-wire act.
Bowles expands an earlier short into an engrossing and uncompromising feature debut...
Some of the symbolism and satire is a bit clunky or far too on-the-nose, but mostly Black Cop shows us the tragic fall of a man who hits his breaking point and becomes determined to similarly break the community he's sworn to protect.
Cory Bowles uses unapologetic satire to explore the racial tensions within the police force and communities.
...a seriously striking yet ultimately unsuccessful debut effort from a promising new filmmaker.
[Ronnie] Rowe's performance is one incrementally furious thread of reaction-whether he feels guilt or remorse is up to you-while scenes of direct camera address allow glances of his fury.
Black Cop is a real conversation starter.
Rowe simmers with enough subtlety that his sudden outbreaks of violence seem to burst from somewhere deep. And the almost absurd unlikeliness of the "white profiling" is disturbing when you stop to think of the ordinariness of the reverse.
For all its visceral images, the film's raw power isn't matched by equally provocative ideas.
A nervy, queasy combination of jet-black satire and stylized psychodrama.
Bowles does a fantastic job of intercutting real footage into some scenes that spark a visceral reaction and shapes the film's narrative to remind you that these moments are very real.
