Craig Atkinson United States, 2016

EdieEmm's rating of the film Do Not Resist

A loose, sweeping overview of some of the systems driving America's rapidly militarizing police force. The insider access Atkinson manages, riding with SWAT teams, sitting in on task forces, attending creepy indoctrinary training sessions, is pretty extraordinary. Which makes it a shame that, with so much powerful footage, and such high production value, he didn't weave a much tighter argument. Still, very good. 3.5
