Tiller Russell’s look at a notorious case of police corruption debuted last year at DOC NYC. It now comes to theatres and VOD platforms via IFC Films/Sundance Selects.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
For Michael Dowd, being a police officer wasn’t a calling, it was just a job – and, assigned to the 75th Precinct in crime-ridden East New York, not an easy or lucrative one. Seizing the opportunity to profit, he stole money from drug dealers, eventually recruiting his partner into an expanding criminal ring. Their 1992 arrest exposed widespread corruption in the NYPD. Weaving together Dowd’s revelatory testimony from the investigation, dramatic surveillance footage and interviews with the primary players, Tiller Russell’s film tells his incendiary tale.
