COP MOVIE, A
[UNA PELÍCULA DE POLICÍAS]
The latest from Alonso Ruizpalacios (GÜEROS, MUSEO) is a breathless, immersive, on-the-job and behind-the-scenes look at the life of Mexico City cops Teresa and Montoya, who are partners both in the squad car and at home in bed. But midway through the movie, what had seemed like a fly-on-the-wall documentary reveals itself to be a metafictional investigation of modern policing, with the actors portraying Teresa (Mónica Del Carmen) and Montoya (Raúl Briones) now speaking to the camera about their 101 days of preparation to portray these real-life characters, which included everything from police academy training to daily ride-alongs with working cops. Ruizpalacios confirms his genius for creating unexpected, genre-bending cinema. Winner, Silver Bear, Outstanding Artistic Contribution, 2021 Berlin International Film Festival. DIR/SCR Alonso Ruizpalacios; SCR David Gaitán; PROD Daniela Alatorre, Elena Fortes. Mexico, 2021, color, 107 min. In Spanish with English subtitles. NOT RATED
