I didn't know what to think going into this movie and but I sure as hell know how I felt coming out of it. I was shocked, horrified, and ashamed.
I was shocked by the openness and honesty of the film. Black Cop is a social commentary, not a basic movie. It doesn't dance around the edge. It comes right at you. When I saw the shot of Black Cop at the protest with the protester's reflection in his sunglasses, I knew I would be experiencing this from different points of views, and I knew it would not be easy.
I was horrified by my nativity. If you are in a privileged class, like I am, who has never been stopped by the police while simply going for a walk or a jog, Black Cop will be an eye opener for you. It gave me a glimpse of what it's like for that to happen when you are doing nothing wrong. You are just being.
I was ashamed of my own thoughts. I read stories and heard accounts of people who were stopped by the police for no reason. On a global scale, it seemed implausible to me that this stuff happens. How could that happen? There must be some reason why they were stopped, right? No, not right. Black Cop puts you in the moment of people who are stopped for no reason. You hear the power play that can go on. You see the presumption. You feel threatened, unsafe. If you stand up and defend your rights, it can all go wrong.
Corey Bowles wrote and directed a film that looks good, sounds good, but it sure doesn't feel good. The truth sometimes isn't.
