Allegedly “less procedural and more darkly comedic than other cop shows, Danny Boyle‘s Babylon (debuting in England on 2.9) is about (a) the “increasingly poor public image of a London police force led by a tight-lipped chief” (Jimmy Nesbitt), (b) an attempt at a p.r. makeover via the department’s new media liaison (Brit Marling), and (c) “a national firestorm triggered by the terrifying reports of a sniper on the loose.” Why isn’t this being shown at Sundance?
