All Critics (28) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (28)

  • Its most lasting impression is a haunted, human one: of Lawrence in the long hallways of the airplane hangar he converted, walls plastered with his obsessive work, this one-man CSI unit on a mission to expose the cracks in a foundation he himself laid.

  • The strength of "Peace Officer" is that it doesn't attempt to pit the viewer against the police.

    October 8, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Surpasses the best episode of the now defunct "CSI" series in its suspense and fascinating procedural detail and rivals the intensity, ingenuity, and broader ramifications of Errol Morris's "The Thin Blue Line."

    October 1, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Lawrence acts as a genial and knowledgable guide to the film's true subject, and the source of its titular irony: the increasing militarization of law enforcement.

    October 1, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The engrossing documentary "Peace Officer" looks at the militarization of police work from a fresh, provocative angle.

  • A few of the revelations here are so disturbing that you realize an entire film of such stuff would be hard to sit through.

  • Or more likely not. An explosive investigative documentary about the deadly militarization of police in this country. And one of its victims - ironically a Utah sheriff who first introduced SWAT teams into his state. An emotionally shattering revelation.
