Reviews

Werner Herzog directs this darkly comic thriller loosely based on Abel Ferrara's 'Bad Lieutenant' (1992). Nicolas Cage stars as corrupt cop Terrence McDonagh, a recently-promoted police detective in post-Hurricane Katrina New Orleans, who approaches both his job and his escalating drug habit with instinctive abandon. Playing fast and loose with the law, McDonagh channels his manic energy into investigating the death of a family of Senegalese immigrants and taking on local drug kingpin Big Fate (Xzibit). Eva Mendes co-stars as McDonagh's troubled prostitute girlfriend, Frankie.

Werner Herzog: director of The Enigma of Kasper Hauser, Nosferatu the Vampyre and other gothic central European works working on a rethink of a miserable and pretentious 90s film set in contemporary America. It could have been a recipe for disaster.

Yet this is a masterpiece: hilarious, moving and exhilarating. Whilst the original had tedious misanthropy masquerading as dark sophisticated humour this has genuinely hilarious scenes, such as when the drug addicted cop sees a dead man break-dancing/ threatens two elderly ladies with a magnum. It's also a surprisingly moving film about love and friendship as well as an exciting thriller.

This is one wild ride: the most engaging, thrilling, original take on contemporary Noir.

Whether you care less about catching something that Cineasts might refer to as an auteur masterpiece of contemporary American cinema or not, just sit back and be transported by this wonderfully fresh, darkly atmospheric vision. It's the bad-cop movie remodelled as a fever dream --and what a trip.

The artistry evident in every aspect of the production that makes this thing such a joy to experience from beginning to end is unsurprising if you know director Werner Herzog's track record, of course. There can't be a finer director anywhere on the planet surely? In Cinema the words 'artist' and 'poet' are bandied about willy-nilly, but this man surely is genuinely one of the great artists of our period in any medium. No mere stylist or aesthete, his taste is nevertheless impeccable and the intelligent poetic sensibility which informs all his work is as evident in this particular film as any. In a re-make project that might easily have been merely another arty piece of genre-manipulation, what's emerged here is much more. In broad terms, it's a stylish but cliche-free, visionary slice of contemporary Western culture --albeit an expressionistic outsider perspective thereof.

I never really expected to see Herzog be given the opportunity to make a full-on, polished, commercial U.S. feature film. It comes as no surprise to see the panache and originality of what he's done with the opportunity, though. I can't imagine a U.S. director doing anything like it, so it amounts to a remarkably fresh addition to the American canon and interesting twist on a familiar genre favourite.

Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call: New Orleans' is a crime drama that released in 2009 to critical acclaim. It's a loose remake of 'Bad Lieutenant' that released in 1992 and starred Harvey Keitel. Unfortunately the movie struggled to get a wide release in the cinemas due to distributors not being interested for some reason. The movie ended up getting a limited release, which sadly resulted in poor box-office returns.

The movie centres around the life of a corrupt Police Lieutenant (Bad Lieutenant) Terrence McDonagh (Nicolas Cage) who is also a drug addict. The movie shows how he starts to get into trouble as he utilizes untoward methods whilst investigating a murder incident and at the same time struggles with his drug addiction.

Now, where do I start on this surprise gem of a movie, it's basically compulsive viewing. Before watching this, I had my doubts due to Cage's not so great previous efforts combined with his below par performances and the trailer of the movie, which didn't generate any kind of excitement. I guess my low expectations ended up making the movie more than likeable. The movie starts off in a dark setting as we get a taste of McDonagh's erratic behaviour and his corrupt world. It then progresses with a series of disjointed but unpredictable events, which don't make sense at the time as to what direction the movies heading in. During these events we witness a successful combination of humor, a love story, emotional drama and corruption. The movie then has a climax, which ties up all loose ends making sense of all the events in the movie. This is done in about sixty seconds, which I thought was short but sweet. The end is simply satisfying.

The movie works brilliantly as you don't know exactly what to expect and look forward to every scene.

This is a strange and brilliant bit of filmmaking. I love it. It's over the top, superbly done and none of the cast have ever been better. It's a grand and highly recommended movie. Great one.

"What was that" was my thoughts as the credits rolled... It was just a long boring cycle of events, something about trying to find the killers of a Senegalese family with Nicolas Cages character being an idiot throughout. I kind of felt like the director/writers were trying to do the whole Quentine Tarantino thing similar to the likes of Pulp Fiction, but they pulled it off terribly.
The only positive I can say about this is movie is looking at Eva Mendes, she didnt suit the role she was given in the movie, it was just odd and didnt fit, but shes hot.. 5 out of 5 stars for how hot Eva Mendes is but 2 for the movie.
