For Michael Dowd, being a police officer wasn’t a calling, it was just a job- and, assigned to the 75th Precinct in crime-ridden East New York, not an easy or lucrative one. Seizing the opportunity to profit, he stole money from drug dealers, eventually recruiting his partner into an expanding criminal ring. Their 1992 arrest exposed widespread corruption in the NYPD. Weaving together Dowd’s revelatory testimony from the investigation, dramatic surveillance footage and interviews with the primary players, The Seven Five tells his incendiary tale.

New York Post says, “Corrupt-cop doc THE SEVEN FIVE is a must see.”

Variety says, “Perhaps the most amazing aspect of Dowd’s confession — and Russell’s documentary — is the total ease with which Dowd reconciles his twin careers as all-out gangster and dedicated cop.”

Village Voice says, “It’s familiar and infuriating – but enthralling.”

PopMatters says, “Tiller Russell’s thrill ride of a documentary is constructed out of an intoxicating mosaic of archival news and surveillance footage.”
