J.J. Murphy

Night Belongs to the Police, The (1982) 16mm, color, 28.75 min

Genre: Experimental

Music: The Republicans, The Appliances, and The Suburbs "THE NIGHT BELONGS TO THE POLICE concerns a burned-out agoraphobe (Jerome Carolfi), his frustrated girlfriend (poet Tess Gallaher), a wonderfully kinetic proto-punk Tinkerbelle (Michelle Davis), and a malevolent network of chiropractors. A satire of fashionable nihilism, it manages to stimultaneously mock and embrace the so-called posturing of the so-called New Wave. It is, most of all, funny."--Chris Ward, CityLights.
