In Theaters: Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans

movieline
20 July 2010
  • Excerpt: Somewhere in the middle of Werner Herzog's Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans , police lieutenant Terence McDonagh (Nicolas Cage) bets on New Orleans and loses big. Cage, looking like he wandered off the set of The Shield and humped all the way to Louisiana in a bad suit and a mescaline haze, is in the grip of several addictions and neck-deep in various permutations of shit, but he just can't stop betting on the Saints.

  • Conclusion: Cage is brilliant, Herzog is masterful. That's all that needs to be said. 'Bad Lieutenant' is a journey into drug induced madness that you won't soon forget. The video is, overall, satisfying and the sound presentation is better than one might expect. The extras offer a very slim package, but that shouldn't stop you from seeing one of the best acting performances of 2009. This one comes highly recommended.

  • Conclusion: Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans is similar to riding a roller coaster without safety straps. Something in the back of your head says you shouldn't be enjoying the trip, and recommends praying for it to end as soon as possible; yet every time the cart dips or somersaults you can't help but feel a rush of excitement and adrenaline course through your veins.

  • Excerpt: Bad Lieutenant contains many wonderful things, not the least of which is Nic Cage giving his first great performance in at least half a decade. It also contains the year’s best line of dialogue and maybe also the year’s best ending, one which pulls no punches and doesn’t seem to give a fuck whether you walk out of the theater liking it or not.

  • Excerpt: Not since Snakes On A Plane has the line between movie and Internet meme been as confused as it is with Werner Herzog and Nicolas Cage’s remake of the Abel Ferrara shocker Bad Lieutenant . When the project was first announced at Cannes, it immediately triggered reaction along the lines of “What kind of crazy train wreck is that going to be?” And once the wondrously insane teaser trailer went viral, it turned into, “Oh, that kind of a crazy train wreck.

Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans Blu-ray Review

1 April 2009
  • Conclusion: I can only begin to imagine what New Orleans must have looked like after Hurricane Katrina hit and its evacuated residents started heading back to their abandoned homes. It must have been an incredibly depressing place. A lot of people probably gave up once they got there. I know a couple that simply chose not to go back.
