Police, Adjective

Wednesday, December 23, 2009 - Thursday, February 11, 2010

The latest from world cinema’s hottest New Wave, Romanian director Corneliu Porumboiu’s (Cannes Camera d’Or-winner 12:08 East of Bucharest) second film is a deadpan anti-thriller about a small-town cop navigating an absurdly meticulous sting operation on a group of pot-smoking teens — and an even more absurd bureaucracy back at the office. Boasting a riotous cameo from 4 Months, 3 Weeks & 2 Days‘ Vlad Ivanov, this sly and wickedly smart comedy builds into a devastating look at power, conscience and the letters of the law.
