The Latin American Style Of Junta Has Arrived

Police State is absolutely NOT to be confused with mainstream cine dreck like the pathetic Police Academy series. This is one mother of an anti cop film. The film is by Nick Zedd (sometimes known as Nick Zodiac),who in addition to writing,directing & editing this harrowing short, also stars as the film's central character. The story:a young punk is harassed by a New York cop,who has nothing better to do than harass citizens who look different than the accepted norm. The punk gets the cuffs tossed on & is brought to the police station,where he is beaten nearly non stop by not just the arresting officer,but no less than two plainclothes officers, trying to beat a confession out of him. The outcome is a outright corker. This is not a film to watch with any & all members of the police force. No rating,but contains nearly non stop vulgar language & rampant police brutality. Not for the little ones.
