The Offence (1973)
In Sidney Lumet’s harrowing portrayal of police brutality, Detective Sergeant Johnson has been with the British Police Force for 20 years. In that time, the countless murders, rapes and other serious crimes he has had to investigate has left a terrible mark on him. His anger and aggression that had been suppressed for years finally surfaces when interviewing a suspect, Baxter, whom Johnson is convinced is the man that has been carrying out a series of brutal attacks on young girls. Throughout the interview Johnson brutally beats Baxter and during this ordeal he inadvertently reveals that the state of his own mind is probably no better than that of the offenders who committed the crimes that disgusted Johnson originally.

… The Offence’ is one of the few films which accurately captures the bleak, estranged architecture of the many English New Towns that sprang up in the 50’s and 60’s. Lumet’s eye for these soul-sucking landscapes is brilliant – better than that of most English directors. Originally conceived as ‘workers paradises’ by over zealous town-planners, these would-be concrete utopias rapidly became focal points of social malaise. It is fitting that Connery’s troubled character should live and work in such desolation.

The story is not only emotionally complex but has an ambitious, multi-layered, time-shifted narrative structure that echoes the fractured memory of Connery’s character. Lumet takes all these elements and shapes them into an unforgettable portrait of human frailty.
