superb film, much more ra and real than the nick cage versions. harvey keitel is marvellous; corrupt in every sense and so depleted he has lost all dignity. very blue and sometimes shocking. not for the feint hearted.

Keitel turns in what might be his best-ever performance in this monstrously ugly tale of moral corruption. There's no easy moment in the 90 minutes of this film. It veers from bad to worse to despair, charting the downfall of a corrupt cop who revels in every addiction going.
Watching Bad Lieutenant wasn't an entirely enjoyable experience -- although the film-making is to be applauded alongside Keitel's jaw-dropping depiction of a man on the brink. The spiral into awfulness makes for grim viewing, however. It's also one of those films with a paper-thin plot: the action is almost entirely character driven and bounces from one isolated scene to another with little to connect them apart from the self-destructive urges of the central character. The filming is remarkable, too, full of murky stairwells. peeling paint and dark corridors shot in a realistic manner. Sometimes, though, the viewer isn't entirely sure what is real and what is an hallucination.

UK viewers may struggle a little to understand what's going on with the baseball games (and these form a core of the story as they are what the cop is gambling on). You shoudl also check that you're getting a modern DVD with the extras and full-screen film. We saw an older version and had to watch it shrunk within goalposts, and the sound quality was desperate on that version.

Also, be aware that this film is extremely explicit in the sex, drugs and, erm, sex n drugs departments.
Not nice in the slightest, but very impressive film-making.

It was great to see Abel Ferrara tipped in one of the best directors of all-time by Guardian critic, Peter Bradshaw. The early promise has showed up and we are witnessing a major talent; alongside Brian De Palma (for whom I make no apology).

Driller Killer was a startling film, and showed at once an ingenious wit - and a precocious talent for other peoples' mores.

Well done, Mr. Ferrara.

Sometimes your need to explore the bad. Not sugar coat it, not make it all-right-in-the-end feelgood hollywood crowd-pleasing, but take a character and a situation and follow them both through to their rightful conclusion. And make no mistake, this is totally about badness - Keitel's character is as corrupted to the core as a human being can be. And we witness it all close up. But can someone like him be ultimately redeemed? I'll leave you to find out. Be prepared to be shocked, to witness total corruption and despair, and to witness one of the best performances an actor can give. This film will take you way beyond your comfort zone - but is a tour de force of vital, raw cinema. I still shudder now when recalling it and how I felt at the ending. It doesn't come much better than this.

By Charles Vasey TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 6 Sept. 2008
Format: DVD
Harvey Keitel's Bad Lieutenant is a marvellously played piece of unpleasantness. He lacks any limits to his various appetites, all of which are combining to finish him off via a series of unpleasant to shocking episodes. The rape of a young nun by two youths and his own problems with a bookie combine to expose his emptiness which, since he is (well, claims to be) Roman Catholic is undoubtedly Jesus' problem. That episode (I'll not spoil the plot) is particularly affecting. The downside with Bad Lieutenant is that it is a total downer. But Keitel is astonishing as ever.
