Poliţist, adjectiv

Corneliu Porumboiu Roumanie, 2009

Joe Hackman's rating of the film Policier, adjectif

I am beginning to explore this Romanian New Wave movement and I really liked this movie. A police film (n.) that defies the conventions of a detective-cop movie in ways similar to Breathless. Police films usually lead us to action, but 50% of Police, Adj. is Cristi waiting around. His job is following pot-smoking teenagers and dealing with Romanian red-tape and we are forced to sit there with him and wait. I dig it.
