FILMS / BRIEF SURVEY / BAD LIEUTENANT - PORT OF CALL: NEW ORLEANS  
   
 
 © by Werner Herzog Film  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 tumultous 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.


World premiere: September 9th, 2009, Venice International Film Festival
