Ep. 04 Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans

Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans

We’ve made it to our first remake!….. Or is it a sequel?¬†Our friend Dave joins us as our first guest-host, and he brought us this gem to watch. Nic Cage is the centerpiece of this cocaine fueled romp through post-Katrina New Orleans, directed by Werner Herzog. This pairing of actor/director/subject lets Cage shine as a moody and perhaps insane Police Lieutenant, in a murder mystery that is equal parts dark, funny, and surreal. It does however leave us asking, was he really all that bad?
