    The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call - New Orleans isn't dreadfully dull or sloppily disjointed like its title suggests; Instead, It's one of the most truly extraordinary films to ever fall into a sense of obscurity or opaqueness. While getting critical acclaim, audiences were divided. I just don't think they knew what hit them.

    Simultaneously being Werner Herzog's and Nicolas Cage's finest work, The Bad Lieutenant is a story of self-hatred and disillusion set against a landscape of both physical…

    I didn't like this, or My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done?, on the initial viewings. I found this distressing because I love Werner Herzog. So, I watched them again, and lo and behold they are fantastic movies. I don't think I have watched any movie as much as Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call - New Orleans, since I was like 7.

    Hey, did I ever tell you about the nigger elk?

    I was watching TV - the game, right? Renaldo Hayes? He got tossed the ball and he was running with it, he was running running running. He jumped over three linebackers in mid-air. He sprouted antlers! Like a gazelle? Like an elk? He landed again - he ran ran ran - He scored a touch-down!

    Do fish have dreams?

    There's a key gag midway through TBL:POC, which more or less lays out how the film works. Herzog establishes a scene by luxuriating over a shot of a dead alligator in the middle of the road, body partly open, covered in small official markers. It's a grotesque and oddly alluring shot (like that of every reptile in the movie). From there, the camera zooms back over the road to show the bigger picture; a car had apparently hit the alligator…

    It's pretty weird that this happens to be Werner Herzog's best film. The dude consistently sets the bar high but almost never reaches perfection. If he ever deserved it, this is the one that get's the extra half a star.

    Wonderfully bizarre. Nicolas Cage + Werner Herzog = magical.

    Is it perhaps the most Cage of all?
