Code 33 [A RUMUR Film]

Code 33 [A RUMUR Film]

“Husband-and-wife helming team of Michael Galinsky and Suki Hawley raised eyebrows with their 2002 docu ‘Horns and Halos’ about an ill-fated bio of George W. Bush and the mysterious death of its luckless author. Like that film, ‘Code 33′ exhibits an invigorating attention to detail and no-nonsense narrative confidence that immediately lifts it above the pack of over-pumped and blatantly manipulative skeins such as the ‘CSI’ franchise and ‘Cops.’ First conceived as a series-length tube profile of attractive and straight-talking forensic artist Samantha Steinberg, pic shifted gears when a string of seven rapes, against women ranging in age from 11 to 79, begin to attract national attention. A sterling example of the luck and skill necessary to have cameras rolling in the right place at the right time, pic exhibits an intimacy with the investigative process born of a year’s negotiation for access with the Miami and Miami-Dade County police departments. In a climactic encounter too good to have been scripted, the camera observes the suspect’s impromptu confession in a stairwell — followed by a tearful apology to the stone-faced and unforgiving police chief.” — Eddie Cockrell, Variety

“Code 33 is an uncommonly candid window into the mechanics of police work.” — Renee Rodriguez, Miami Herald

“Code 33 plays like a smart cross between CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and the spate of of crime-oriented reality television programs permeating the airwaves. But the compelling story line, involving the notorious case of a serial rapist in Miami, and the filmmakers’ skill at examining the subject from various viewpoints, gives it an original quality.” – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
