18 Minute Celluloid Found in Trash, transpires into interesting study on New York Police.
23 July 2000 | by GoredogSee all my reviews

Police State was directed, starred, edited, and produced by Cinema of Transgression founder Nick Zedd. Now while Nick Zedd does not even remotely appeal to mainstream interests, he does enthral a minute portion of viewers with his aptitude for rebellion, never succumbing to that external sentiment he does not contend with. Police State is about 18 minutes, yet it does pack a powerful punch, a kind of punch that might knock your 80 year old grandma out for the count. I will not unveil all of the film's content, but I must say that this is low budget punk idealism at its best, and here Police are portrayed as the cowards and sanctimonious pigs that they are. The quality and resolution is probably not up to par with what your use to, but that shouldn't matter, because if you even have the gall to run a search on Nick Zedd, you probably don't care if the film has one dose of meaning, just to see ego-inflated cops belittled is enough for consistent entertainment.
