In the aftermath of the Flint water crisis, Flint Town takes an intimate look at the state of policing in America through the lens of the Flint Police Department. Flint, Mich. is consistently named one of the most violent cities in America and the community is still grappling with the coverup of a citywide water contamination, leading to a massive distrust in law enforcement officials. Over the course of eight episodes, filmmakers embed with the police officers faced with infrastructure issues and decreasing resources as they risk their lives to protect and serve the community, while simultaneously struggling to gain their support.

There is something stretched out about it, a feeling of time being used up rather than of a story being well told. Netflix needs to watch this. The sprawl is starting to get to this subscriber, for one.

Flint Town doesn't offer easy solutions, but it does provide something valuable: a calm, reasoned presentation of the hope for another idea expressed in that speech given in the aftermath of Dallas, "that we are not as divided as we seem."

Flint Town isn't a rah-rah thing, nor does it paint a fuzzy picture about the spirit of the city or its citizens. Flint is a timebomb, and Flint Town is an impressively crafted tick-tock of things going wrong with a place.

With cinematography, direction and subject matter this pin-sharp, the risk is making it all look too slick, even glamorous.

The faces, moments and experiences are all real. It is a chronicle of a corner of the republic tossed away, but demanding we pay attention.
