Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans

Nicolas Cage is a corrupt, drug-snorting, gambling-addicted, very bad lieutenant in Oscar nominee Werner Herzog's remake of the 1992 Harvey Keitel crime thriller. Set after Hurricane Katrina, detective Terence McDonagh investigates the drug-related killing of a family but his mounting debt, drugged-out girlfriend, and his generally awful behaviour prevent the case from getting solved.

Herzog’s film, by contrast, is both an intermittent police procedural and an outrageously diverting celebration of crack mania.

Bad Lieutenant doesn't go where you expect, but it has a stubborn, trippy logic.

No one is better at this kind of performance than Nicolas Cage. He's a fearless actor. He doesn't care if you think he goes over the top. If a film calls for it, he will crawl to the top hand over hand with bleeding fingernails.
