I understand what the director was trying to do. I understand all of it. But it doesn't make it good. Maybe if I was a pretentious critic who likes this movie because it is foreign and under the radar. This movie had no conflict and watching a man stand around and eat his dinner isn't making a *************** called bad filmmaking. Anyone who in their right mind would not find this movie

Vcmdre..I only wish I had read your review before I went. I don't believe there is a movie out there that is this bad.

"Thrilling"? Is watching paint dry compelling? "The power of visuals" ? More like the force of ambiem. I want my 2 hours and money back. Really, bad. Save yourself!

Like a dark-comedy sequel to the masterful German film "The Lives of Others," Corneliu Porumboiu's Police, Adjective gives viewers a penetrating glimpse of surveillance culture, in this case as it plays out in post-communist Romania. Full Review
The New York Times
So much in this meticulous and moving film is between the lines, and almost nothing is by the book. Full Review
Porumboiu is one of the few helmers working today who so completely understands both the power of language and the power of visuals. Full Review
Wall Street Journal
The movie comes on like a put-on--next to nothing happens for an excruciatingly long time--and ends as a fascinating dialectic between following one's conscience or following the law. Full Review
