The strength of "Peace Officer" is that it doesn't attempt to pit the viewer against the police.
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."
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.
The engrossing documentary "Peace Officer" looks at the militarization of police work from a fresh, provocative angle.
This is one of the year's best films.
While "Peace Officer" could offer more information, what is here is disturbing and sometimes eye-opening.
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.
A first-rate look at the increasingly relevant issue of police militarisation.
Peace Officer paints an informative and fairly balanced portrayal of an issue that is more relevant now than ever before.
Dub's combination of professionalism, admitted obsession and general likeability make him an excellent focal point for a film of this sort.
One aspect the filmmakers do make clear is that a disconnect has sprouted between police and ordinary citizens who ... feel threatened by the very people who are sworn to protect and serve them.
