“Your tree is dead, and if it’s not chopped down it will continue to harm and disturb the living.”

That is only of course the best line in the Charles Mudede/Robinson Devor movie Police Beat, by which I mean the Mudedest line.

Have you not heard it spoken? Have you not seen Police Beat?

I ran into this syndrome a few months ago, when a friend I recommended it to couldn’t find it at the video store.

Now, just this week, it’s out on DVD, in all its strange and beautiful glory.

(In honor of the release, the LA Times saluted it on Sunday as one of the “least likely and most original American independent films of the last few years.”)

You can finally get your hands on it.

I saw this movie twice in the brief time is was at the Varsity. It really is one of the best American movies of the last n years. Plus, the view of Seattle is so warped and so unique. This movie is reason enough to love Charles Mudede! Take that, haters!

I saw it at the Edinburgh Film Festival and loved it. And that line is indeed the best.

He practically jacked it from The Virgin Suicides. Or did Devor jack it? One of the two.
