Could only make it 25min through the doc bc I got sick of Dowd smiling and laughing as he recalled stories of his disgusting corruption. May be karma gets him by the end of the movie, but I won't stick around to find out. This ex-cop is a total piece of shit.
A Netflix crime doc that had highlighted police corruption at the peak of the crack cocaine era
Gave a lot of insight into an area I knew little about. Scenes were well edited and stories were larger-than-life.
Yet, this is not ground-breaking in its genre or present anything new. The documentary did not resonate well with me long after watching.
3.5/5. 4/5 on a good day. Though a good documentary. I cannot honestly give a higher rating.
The wife and I gave this a spin via TiVo recording, and it was a pretty fascinating look at the corruption in the 75th Precinct of NYC circa the mid '80s. The cops involved all seem to be there to narrate things, even those that did tie for their misdeeds, and more than one seems to be more bragging about this shit than apologetic, so it makes for really interesting viewing.
Well worth a look, recommended.
More than a documentary about cop corruption, what is really at stakes here is to what extent we sympathize with the bad guy and dismiss who does the "right" thing, how Mike Dowd was a "good" cop until the end and how Kenny Eurell got away with jail time by ratting on him.
Great fuckin movie!!
Just came across this documentary on Netflix, what makes this doc so compelling is the sheer honesty of all the subjects including Michael Dowd. There's no sugar coating. He was greedy, he made mistakes, but he owned it.
Very well done and informative.
THIS is THE New York City of the 70s!!! The ONE I remember!!
such an insightful documentary about one of America's most corrupt police officers. It just keeps getting more crazy an it's narrated by the culprit Michael died. strongly recommend 10/10.
Thoroughly enjoyed this one.
Seeing the accounts of all the main players from all parties was great stuff.
