Weird But Not Awful,
This review is from: Bad Lieutenant [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
One one level, this is a fairly standard cop flick, but on the other it's as if you're seeing it through the drug-addled mind of the lead character.
At first, it reminded me a little of The Shield, which can only be a good thing, but fairly quickly it degenerated into the drug phase, which to me was over the top.
Whilst there was a certain amount of black humour, I just got fed up with Cage being high on whatever most of the time. It reminded me a bit of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, which I gave up on after 20 minutes because of the tripping sequences.
I stuck with this to the end, but kind of wish I had these two hours of my life back again. Maybe worth a rental if you've seen pretty much everything else that interests you, or if you get off on druggy films.
