NOT Babe
8 June 2002 | by (Pittsburgh, PA) – See all my reviews

Definitely not to be confused with that movie about a little farm animal from the city, this film showcases a textured portrait of a small town cop, meticulously drawn through various painstaking ride-alongs with the title character and revealing interviews with the townsfolk who have had the luck or misfortune of crossing his path. As the title character, Jim Volkert skillfully reveals a man wrought by the emotional turbulence associated with the wide range of reactions to his character and badge, as he is capriciously considered everything from a hero to a heel on a moment to moment basis. The interviews and interactions with his contemporaries poignantly illustrate the complexity of human interpretation and the multi-faceted, yet mostly unpleasant nature of law enforcement. These vignettes display some of the film's most eye-catching performances. Virginia Drda and Max Burkins are particularly sincere and endearing, providing the viewer with the occasional peeks at PiG's soft underbelly. The deliberate pacing and quirky settings held my attention throughout.

As this film was apparently made for under $30,000, I was anxious to see the results. It's impressive, and though there are some areas where the shoestring budget and lack of extras is apparent, there's nothing here that's unforgivable. I am anticipating the next Conway/Bosko production with great interest.
