“City of Lies”

Ready to hate the LAPD and love Johnny Depp? Have I got the movie for you!

This is a fascinating case study in the miscarriage of justice, social sicknesses we still suffer from, power corrupting, and incentives aligning to damage the most at-risk among us. After watching the Netflix series and working my way through the audiobook before seeing this, the story doesn’t get any more positive. 2 detectives who self-destructed in pursuit of the truth against every social and political pressure imaginable. 2 young men whose lives ended far too soon. A city with bottomless corruption. Captivating performances by all. A great example of real-life writing a far better story than a screenwriter ever could, transcribed beautifully to the silver screen by this crew. Very well done!
