Gripping documentary
4 March 2018 | by master-77503See all my reviews

A real introspective look into the lives of people who stand agaisnt police brutality by filming interactions with cops as bystanders. It delivers an emotional story of their lives in the aftermath of high profile videos that have helped open all of our eyes to the injustices that many see, feel, and experience at the hands of those sworn to protect us and uphold the law. This documentary captures angles and emotions so well, it's engaging, it's stirring, and it's riveting. I appreciate the work they do as Cop Watchers and the work that was put into making this film.
