Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans - Movie Synopsis & Plot

In Werner Herzog's new film "Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans," Nicolas Cage plays a rogue detective who is as devoted to his job as he is at scoring drugs -- while playing fast and loose with the law. He wields his badge as often as he wields his gun in order to get his way. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina he becomes a high-functioning addict who is a deeply intuitive, fearless detective reigning over the beautiful ruins of New Orleans with authority and abandon. Complicating his tumultuous life is the prostitute he loves (played by Eva Mendes). Together they descend into their own world marked by desire, compulsion, and conscience. The result is a singular masterpiece of filmmaking: equally sad and manically humorous.

MOVIE REVIEW

Nicolas Cage is a man who loves to act. He loves to act so much that he'll sign up for anything that has been put to writing, generally without reading it first. This utter enthusiasm to be on the screen has resulted in such disasters as Bangkok Dangerous, Ghost Rider and The Wicker Man. But for every ten movies he does, he manages to pick a project that reminds us why he is an Oscar-winning actor. The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans is one of those movies.
