Director Alonso Ruizpalacios takes us deep into the Mexican police force with the story of Teresa and Montoya, together known as “the love patrol.” In this thoroughly original and unpredictable documentary, Ruizpalacios plays with the boundaries of nonfiction and immerses the audience into the human experience of police work within a dysfunctional system.

Directed by Alonso Ruizpalacios, produced by Daniela Alatorre and Elena Fortes, and starred by Mónica del Carmen and Raúl Briones. A Cop Movie is a Netflix original film produced by No Ficción.
