Corruption and the Legal System
Prince of the City is one hell of a movie.
Made in 1981, it tells the story of Daniel Ciello (real life ex-NYPD detective Robert Leuci) and his quest to uncover police corruption, the unintended consequences of his decision and the lasting changes that came about as a result.
Watching this movie on DVD via Netflix, I was thinking that movies of this length Part 1 - 2:47, Part 2 - 1:29, almost 5 hours long are not made anymore. What an Odyssey into one man's almost mental break down and the obstacles, physical, mental and spiritual that he has to overcome in his quest to uncover, while undercover the shenanigans deep with NYPD and its justice system.
