ACAB ?
25 December 2019 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

I thought about the Stefano Sollima's film whilst watching this one. I mean ACAB depicting the true and authentic life of street cops. The daily burden and inner problems. Nothing special here, a good study from the inside. We have already seen this before and that's not a thriller, as a reviewer has said, nor a crime movie though it speaks of cops. But nothing really criminal element here, nor gunshots, no gangsters. Nor heroes of any kind. Just an accurate study with a very riveting ending sequences. A fist in the face.
