Serpico

446 members

Many of his fellow officers considered him the most dangerous man alive - An honest cop.

Frank Serpico is an idealistic New York City cop who refuses to take bribes, unlike the rest of the force. His actions get Frank shunned by the other officers, and often placed in dangerous situations by his partners. When his superiors ignore Frank's accusations of corruption, he decides to go public with the allegations. Although this causes the Knapp Commission to investigate his claims, Frank has also placed a target on himself.

Excellent film. Pourtant, se basant sur une histoire vraie, il ne propose pas de manipulation fulgurante, de révélation époustouflante… Après avoir vu le film, on peut presque dire que c’est banal – certes, tout ce qui se passe est grave et important, mais ça ne met pas dans un émoi transcendant. Tout le film est assez calme. Et pourtant, j’ai été happé, par le jeu formidable et plus intérieur de Pacino, par la réalisation tranquille mais efficace de Lumet, par l’excellente progression temporelle… Certes, ça ne tire pas à tout va, il n’y a pas 10000 rebondissements, mais c’est bougrement efficace !
