Law and Disorder in Philadelphia is a 2008 British documentary by Louis Theroux.[1] It has also screened in some places with the title Killadelphia [2]

Reception[edit]

The programme was met with a mixed response. The Independent said "It was a fascinating film, though, in part because of the utter dereliction of this particular patch of the inner city, but also because it confirmed that The Wire had, if anything, understated its portrait of civil breakdown."[3]

The Times described it as "It was a depressing tour streaked with black humour but Theroux seemed out of depth analysing what he saw. He is at his best getting to know and under the skin of his subjects."[4]
