Serpico (Empire On-Demand Review)

SerpicoSquareSerpico (1973), Netflix

A post-Godfather Al Pacino is on blazing form in the searing true story of Frank Serpico, the straight-arrow New York cop who took on corruption in his own Bronx precinct, and wound up ostracized by the fellow officers who felt he betrayed them. 40 years on, Sidney Lumet’s searing drama becomes a curiously topical tale of the violent blowback suffered by a courageous whistle blower.

Empire rating: ★★★★★
