Law and Disorder

Director: Ivan Passer
Screenwriters: Ivan Passer

Institute History

  • 1985 Sundance Film Festival


In this intelligent, original comedy-drama, Passer’s absorption of American culture goes right to its root. Two New York suburbanites, aghast at the escalating crime rate, form their own vigilante patrol. At first they treat their escapades as a lark but it soon becomes deadly serious. A strong cast and interesting vignettes make Law And Disorder well worth watching.
