What are people saying?

  • The Macho King's rating of the film The Seven Five

    Pretty much the reverse side of Cocaine Cowboys. Wild documentary about police corruption during the 80's and early 90's in New York. Examines closely the unwritten rule between fellow officers that stand soundless behind the Blue Wall of Silence at the cost of one's own ethics/moral compass.

  • JCPJD's rating of the film The Seven Five

    I really enjoyed this. It's a neat little tale of an NYPD cop who lived briefly without any boundaries whatsoever. Whilst there is no doubt he's a sociopath, he is incredibly charming. As is the terrifying Bryan Adams listening Diaz. The interview footage, the 360 storytelling from different perspectives, the access granted, all make for a great Netflix Sunday afternoon watch.

  • Thomas Dods's rating of the film The Seven Five

    Fast paced and hugely entertaining documentary about police corruption in the LAPD. Given how poorly paid and overworked the cops were (are), i'm not surprised that they were often skimming drug money, especially as dealing drugs seems to be the easiest way to make big bucks in America. The naked ambition and unrepentant nature of Michael Dowd however, is something to behold.
