Πρωϊνή Περίπολος

Nikos Nikolaidis Greece, 1987

dionysus67's rating of the film Morning Patrol

It is a pity that Nikolaidis could not (or did not wish to) develop a tighter script that could connect the post-apocalyptic urban wasteland into a some sort of critical inquiry of a civilization in debris. As a result, the admitedly competent duo is only engaging in incoherent reflections. It looks extremely handsome with beautiful shots mostly in the alleys and in the anarchically romantic finale. Worth watching.
