A Good Partner
This project takes the tropes of late 80’s/early 90’s cop movies like Heat or LA Confidential and infuses them with our brand of Portlandia-esque surrealist humor. I, like most people my age, grew up with these gritty cop thrillers. The films’ keen sense of justice always resonated with me because I had an abusive childhood and was emancipated as a minor before being adopted as a teenager. In the world of these movies bad guys always get what’s coming to them, even if the good guys have to break the rules to make sure it happens. This project was a love letter to those movies.
