short

review by
Mike Haberfelner

All cops Michael (Justin Thibault) and Brenda (Audrey Noone) were supposed to do was to deliver a search warrant to known drug dealer Reuben (Anthony Gaudette) - but then something goes wrong, and they somehow shoothim and his innocent girlfriend Lacy (Sheri Lee) - and then they have the good idea to "confiscate" some of his drugs to sell on the black market for their own benefit. But of course, after the whole thing Michael and Brenda have to lay low for a while, which gets to Brenda especially since she's thus unable to be with her daughter. However, she has got a friend, L.T. Carmichael (Chris Fisher), who promises her everything will be ok - which is of course the very same thing Michael has promised her, but while Michael is an incorrigible optimist who never thinks about the consequences of his actions, L.T. Carmichael is someone who actually can move things. But then Brenda is picked up by internal affairs, and forced into a position she doesn't enjoy one bit - and she's rather surprised what role L.T. Carmichael actually plays in this ...

 

Bent is a pretty great "crooked cop" movie that works quite as beautifully as it does because it does focus not so much on the action that the genre pretty much brings with itself but on the human drama underlying it all, which is not hammered home though but delivered in a very subtle way. And naturally, a first rate cast helps enormously bringing the point across as well!
