I'm forgoing the star-rating on this because it's mostly impossible. This feels like if Lasse Hallström set out to make one of his patented Lasse Hallström films, temporarily suffered amnesia and decided to remake COFFY instead, then recovered enough to finish it as a Lasse Hallström movie. All of which is appropriate as I don't think I've felt this shook by a modern movie since Hallström's own SAFE HAVEN. If there's one central message that this film is ultimately trying to convey, I think it's this one: "fuck the police".
Also there are like 3 legitimately good shots in this.
