Al Pacino earned a Lead Actor Oscar nomination playing Frank Serpico in the 1973 autobiography film SERPICO directed by Sidney Lumet with the Oscar nominated screenplay written by Waldo Salt and Norman Wexler. See more »
In this documentary we see an aging Frank Serpico, former NYPD police officer, relive his experiences as a Police Officer in New York City during a period when corruption was rampant in the department, and crime was high. In viewing this documentary one would get the most out of it by reading the book and watching the movie Serpico as well. If you are a history of public administration student, or are interested in politics, I recommend watching video of the Knapp Commission which was formed by Mayor John Lindsey to look into police corruption in the department. This documentary is slow and at times does not seem to follow a logical script, but it is valuable given the subject at hand. I think one of Serpico's greatest challenge is living up to Al Pacino's performance.
