Enforcing the law within the notoriously rough Brownsville section of the city and especially within the Van Dyke housing projects is the NYPD's sixty-fifth precinct. Three police officers struggle with the sometimes fine line between right and wrong.
Directed by: Antoine Fuqua
The first thought I had after finishing the film was "This shit is on par with The Wire". It surely dramatized (it's a film after all), but it doesn't seem to be pulling any punches. The colors, the lighting, the stories that intertwine... pretty damn good. But what I liked the most was that there's no happy ending. It's a not a feel good movie. It's raw, just like life and it's how it should be.
