The Seven Five

The Seven Five 550“Wildly entertaining … Hollywood could take lessons in gangster chutzpah from the real-life convicted robbers and dirty cops … riveting.”  –Variety

In the late 1980s and early ‘90s, Brooklyn was the murder capital of America and ground zero for the crack cocaine epidemic. One man led his crew on a rampage through the streets of East New York, robbing dope dealers at gunpoint, stealing countless kilos of cocaine and hundreds of thousands dollars in cash. The culprit? Michael Dowd, a NYPD officer and the dirtiest cop ever. His shenanigans led to New York’s largest police corruption scandal. Tiller Russell’s doc is too wild to be fiction.
