In the early 1970s, Officer Frank Serpico made headlines when he blew the whistle on a culture of bribery and corruption within the New York City Police Department. Now, Serpico tells his story in his own words: from his Italian-American roots in Brooklyn to his disillusionment with the NYPD to his riveting account of a dramatic drug bust, and possible set-up that ended with him being shot in the face.

Excellent documentary by a brave man who took on the corrupt heads of the New York police dept. Some interesting special features.

Loved the interview with the man, himself. This was better than the movie, God let him live to expose police crimes.

Serpico was one of my favorite movies back in the day (still a huge Al Pacino fan) so I was interested in this documentary about Frank Serpico's upbringing and early days in the NYC police force. Lots of focus on "the incident"-- the shooting that may or may not have been a set up. Most interesting were the interviews with people who were involved decades ago in the affair-- fellow officers, journalists, lawyers, who have their perspectives on Serpico and his actions-- and the revisiting of many of the sites around New York that played a key role in Serpico's story.
