Loosely based on Abel Ferrara's 'Bad Lieutenant', auteur Werner Herzog's 'Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans' is one of the most thrillingly enjoyable and audacious films of his career. Nicolas Cage (part James Stewart, part Richard III, and on top form) plays a rogue detective equally devoted to his job and scoring. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina he becomes a high-functioning addict who is a deeply intuitive, fearless detective reigning over the ruins of New Orleans with authority and abandon. Complicating his tumultuous life is the prostitute he loves (Eva Mendes). The result is a singular masterpiece of filmmaking: equally sad and manically humorous. Look out for the scene featuring the Iguanas. BBFC Certified 18 - Contains frequent hard drug use, sex and very strong language ★★★★ "Werner Herzog is probably the only director qualified to take this on, and his bizarre reboot has a fascination all of its own" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ★★★★ "Beautifully shot" - Charlotte O'Sullivan, The Evening Standard ★★★★★ "A genuine oddity, a furious and unforgettable hybrid which may well prove to be 2010's most purely enjoyable moviegoing experience." - Tom Huddleston, Time Out
