Didn't care for this a whole lot, but aspects of it kept gnawing away in my mind, so I rewatched it.
Subversive job of turning a comic film into a cheap B-flick cop show.
Deft use of jump cuts to minimize Nielsen's humor and shift his character to Joe Friday territory.
Presley also cast as more shadowy, mysterious.
I suspect Matrixgrindhouse could have taken her farther if he wanted.
Audio and video work was ugly, jarring, often amateurish.
Again, I suspect that was the point.
If it wasn't for time restrictions, this might have worked even better as a 30" television episode. Dragnet - 77 Sunset Strip - M Squad, something similar.
A prickly weed of a short, and all the better for it.
