An honest New York cop named Frank Serpico blows the whistle on rampant corruption in the force only to have his comrades turn against him. "Illustrating in an anguishing way the dilemma experienced by the title character, the movie approaches corruption like something endemic that, more than acceptable to everybody, is practically imposed by the city's police." - Roger Ebert
