Director Tiller Russell (Operation Odessa, Cockfight, Chicago Fire) knows a great story when he finds one, and “The Seventy Five” (2014) is certainly that.
It stars an unapologetically corrupt cop named Michael Dowd, someone who can be as fiery and unapologetic on screen as Al Pacino. He’s got a foul mouth and a mug to match.
His co-stars are real drug dealers like Adam Diaz, who made millions selling kilos of cocaine out of a grocery store. One problem with the film is that takes 45 minutes to get to some of the best characters. But once this doc warm ups it hums. Hang with it, it pays off. Find “The Seven Five” streaming on Netflix.
