    Nicolas Cage and Werner Herzog celebrate humanity's capacity for perseverance by exploring the nature of a thoroughly awful human being. Cage's Lieutenant Terrence McDonagh is id driven by ego, a man with no inhibitions, a truly massive sense of entitlement and a vague, drug-addled memory of a conscience. Herzog follows the Lieutenant through a Katrina-scarred New Orleans, simultaneously bearing witness to McDonagh's investigation of a vicious multiple homicide and the impeding implosion of his life. While that happens, he makes…

    This is Nicolas Cage at his very best. If you have seen a lot of his movies, you might think that doesn't mean much. He has been in many bad movies and has in turn made some movies bad, but every so often, he can just blow you away. Werner Herzog knows how to get performances from people. His early career was often him getting great performances out of difficult actors, or people who weren't actors at all.

    The movie…

    A campy, violent, drugged-out mess of a film which is saved and elevated into something great by the sincerity and compassion with which director Werner Herzog portrays the film's damaged, ridiculous characters. As 'dark' as a dark comedy will ever go (think brutally murdered gang members coming back to life and breakdancing in a heroin induced hallucination), this film is hilarious, violent, frightening and incisive all at the same time. The centrepiece is of course actor-turned-meme Nicolas Cage's performance as…

    I like it a lot. Cage being drug smoking cop is very entertaining. Herzog is the special kind of man to make Cage's crazyness and turn it into awesomeness.

    Third viewing. It kind of gets better every time. Just so much insanity. Cage's measured meltdown, the bravura camera work, the amped-up supporting players ("Oh, yeahhhh!")--a movie that should not be but somehow is.

    Herzog and Cage make a potent mix in this deranged cop drama. Cage plays a detective assigned to a multiple homicide in New Orleans. He suffers from chronic back pain and, to put it mildly, self-medicates. As he continues to mix Heroin, coke, crack, meth and prescription Vicodin he begins to lose his grasp on the case, as well as his personal life.

    It’s a unique take on the police procedural genre, in the sense that the procedure flies out…
