Serpico (1973, 130 min) is a crime film directed by Sidney Lumet. The screenplay is based on Peter Maas' biography of NYPD officer Frank Serpico, who went undercover to expose corruption in the NYPD. The film covers the 12 years, from 1960 to 1972, in the life of Serpico (Al Pacino), who blew the whistle on rampant corruption in the force.
