Watch: Police Beat 2005 123movies, Full Movie Online – Police Beat is a highly unconventional crime film in which the protagonist Z is so preoccupied with his possibly unfaithful girlfriend that he never once acknowledges criminal world that swirls around him. The crimes Z encounters become mirrors of the his turbulent inner state, allowing him to philosophize about his unstable romantic relationship as well as his own development as an emotional being. While Z’s regular interactions are in English, his thoughts the film’s narration are in his native Wolof, the primary language of West Africa. In this way, Police Beat is an unusual portrait of an immigrant new to the United States that focuses less on the protagonist’s socio-economic difficulties than on his emotional responses to American life..
Plot: Z, a Seattle bicycle cop, tries to make sense of the world while patrolling the city streets.

Identity of “Bush Assassin” revealed!
Hey, LuckyStar, I just watched this movie and saw the name of the actor who played the “Bush Assassin.” His name is Jim Newman.
As a Seattlite, I really liked seeing all the familiar settings, like the Seattle Asian Art Museum, Gasworks Park, Smith Tower, and others.
The lack of plot and dramatic tension limited my ability to enjoy this, but I found the main character to be interesting, complex, surprising, and occasionally very funny. Also, some of those bizarre crime episodes were pretty entertaining, as some of you have already said.
I can’t recommend this to film-goers who require a compelling plot, but if you like an original character study, give it a shot.
This is such a wonderful movie I can’t believe it.
I couldn’t agree more with the reviewer before me. This is such a wonderful movie I can’t believe it. I just saw it at the Stockholm Film Festival and it is the best movie of the 7 I have seen yet. I think it really speaks to us here in Sweden since Seattle seems to have common scenery and weather. The sort of dry, low-key humor in this movie is as stated before hilarious.
This movie is about nothing, but still about everything. It deals mostly with Z’s (the main characters) worries about his girlfriend who has gone camping with a male friend. It takes you trough a wide spectrum of feelings and this movie really got to me. The scene were Z calls is answering machine and hears the message from his girlfriend, explaining why she hasn’t called made me feel so…well… completely at ease with myself, and that dark, cold and rainy evening in Stockholm got so much better.
So, go see this film since we need to acknowledge directors like this. I bet you won’t be disappointed.
