Set in LA, Southland is more than just an average cop drama. It seemlessly mixes at work action with at home drama. I used to be a fan of Law & Order, but now it just seems campy compared to the realistic style of Southland. Would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone looking for a truer depiction of police work!
Looked and looked for this movie for my grandson. Difficult to find but found it here and at the right price. Ordering was easy but pickup at my store is an entirely different matter. Never anyone at the pickup desk and even if a manager is standing around watching employees they will never jump in to help.....watch leaves me to believe that those people should never have a position that they can not do but yet manage others.....something is totally wrong with that picture.
With audiences jaded by the usual sex and splatter, do the filmmakers have no qualms about juicing up proceedings with edgy but troubling material which clearly needs more conscientious handling? Apparently not.
