Bad Lieutenant - Port of Call New Orleans is screening as part of an all day celebration of Nicolas Cage: Terence McDonagh is a drug- and gambling-addled detective in post-Katrina New Orleans investigating the killing of five Senegalese immigrants.
Cage’s collaboration with filmmaking legend Werner Herzog is delightfully zany and highlighted with moments of surprising poetry. An unhinged cop is right within Cage’s wheelhouse, and the added element of drug addiction allows him to take his performances into majorly looney and overblown directions. The result is the most gleefully over-the-top Nicolas Cage since Leaving Las Vegas, which is very wonderful to behold. “Shoot him again! His soul is still dancing…”
