Summary: This won best picture, but I don't see why.
It's a fairly dull police procedural that is less interesting than most hour-long crime dramas one would see on TV. Yes, there was an interesting car chase but even that wasn't as interesting as other movies, even compared to others of its day. Much of the movie is just cops sitting around waiting and watching. No view of their personal lives, no character development, and no real repercussions for bad actions. I was hoping for a lot more.
