Movie of the Week - Corrupt (1983)

Starring John Lydon, and Harvey Keitel, and titled at various times Cop Killer, The Order of Death, or most commonly Corrupt. Hat tip to Dangerous Minds.

What the NY Times said in its review on January 19, 1984: "Mr. Lydon, who has just the right insinuating, runty quality for Leo, makes a strong impression, and in a better film would make an even stronger one. Mr. Faenza has given ''Corrupt'' some momentum and tension, but there's absolutely nothing to hold it together. It's set in New York, but its angst and intensity feel Italian. The whole thing might just as well be taking place on the moon." Read the whole thing here.
