Double Feature with THE WICKER MAN.
(2009) dir Werner Herzog w/Nicolas Cage, Eva Mendes, Val Kilmer [122 min]
Despite the title, this BAD LIEUTENANT really has nothing to do with Harvey Keitel’s 1992 film. In an awesome performance, Cage teeters on the edge of sanity throughout this excellent piece of breakneck filmmaking from one of the masters of modern cinema. Set in post-Katrina New Orleans, BAD LIEUTENANT stars Cage as a once-good cop who is now almost totally morally bankrupt yet continues to desperately grasp at redemption.
