Police corruption is rampant around the world, but Mexico City’s la policía are among the most notorious. In this thoroughly original and unpredictable docu-fiction hybrid, award-winning filmmaker Alonso Ruizpalacios (Museo, Narcos: Mexico) follows the story of a unique pair of cops, Teresa and Montoya, together known as “the love patrol.” Through a series of captivating reenactments, interviews with the actors portraying the police and then the real-life figures themselves, the film inventively and imaginatively interrogates the troubling double bind of those trying to enforce the law within a dysfunctional system in which morality has no sway.
