Pulp Friction


Third World Cop
A Palm Pictures release
Cinema Village
Opens April 14
Suggesting that punishment fits the crime, Third World Cop exposes the clash between gun traffickers and the police in Kingston, Jamaica. Capone (Paul Campbell), a badass celebrity cop, is transferred to his island hometown, where he discovers that his childhood friend Ratty (Mark Danvers) is the right-hand man of a ganja-loving, gun-running ganglord (Carl Bradshaw). Reciting a passage from Ezekiel to a fellow gang member about to meet an ill fate, Ratty is a philosophizing Jules from Pulp Fiction. As arrogant Capone attempts to cut a deal with Ratty, their icy confrontation thaws to reveal a wiser elder looking after a younger brother. The highest-grossing Jamaican film of all time (one of only 19 films made by Jamaican directors since 1951's Father Brown Learns Good Diary), Cop is an energetic portrayal of mean-street ghetto life.
