Motion Picture Purgatory: Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans

We know it’s not exactly horror, but when Trembles speaks, we listen! And when Werner Herzog directs Nicolas Cage, we can’t help but watch transfixed.

Here’s a quick synopsis of the flick: Terence McDonagh (Cage) is a drug- and gambling-addled detective in post-Katrina New Orleans investigating the killing of five Senegalese immigrants. With a cast that also includes Val Kilmer, Eva Mendes, Jennifer Coolidge, Fairuza Balk, Brad Dourif, and Michael Shannon, what’s not to love?

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    Creepy, did you get a chance to see it yet?

    I am going to try to make time next week in NYC, it is playing at the SUNSHINE. -ALSO- I consider this flick touched with the blessed hand of exploitation, which is horror’s sister and sometimes two-headed child. It is NICE to see this covered here.

    I like lots of films mostly following the jazz line, of horror, weirdness, violence, dread, disturbing, pain and absurdity, which exists in many genres. This flick, just seems full of win. \M/
