Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans (2009) (C)
"One of the best films of the year."
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times.
In Werner Herzog's critically acclaimed film Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage plays Terence McDonagh, a rogue detective who flashes his badge as often as he wields his gun.
After suffering a debilitating back injury in the line of duty, detective McDonagh becomes a high-functioning drug addict who is assigned to lead a mass murder investigation.
As the case hits a roadblock, Terence is sent spiraling into a whirlwind of violence and excess, resulting in an equally thrilling and darkly humorous masterpiece of filmmaking. -- (C) Millennium Films, 2009, USA.
