    Like many of the great film noirs, the writing is convoluted, the hero is troubled, there is a femme fatale, and the structure is twisty. Just how i like them.

    The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call – New Orleans (what a terrible title) is a remake or reimagining, as I've heard, because it's pretty different apparently, of the 1992 Harvey Keitel vehicle, which i havent seen yet. This time around it stars Nicolas Cage, far past his prime, but still…

    "Shoot him again."

    "What for?"

    "His soul is still dancing."

    Nicolas Cage is at his most unhinged, in a career defined by being unhinged. The surrounding film is also completely insane. A character starts break dancing in the middle of a shootout. An old woman at a nursing home gets her oxygen tube pulled out as her life is threatened and Iguanas appear out of nowhere.

    An absurdity.

    I like this one much more than I did the first time. Can't quite hold a candle to the Keitel version, though. I don't know if those films share any sort of lineage at all, but it seems worth comparing anyway. Though the details vary between the two, both films' big pictures are the same. I'd kinda be curious to see the two films swap endings, but that would probably fuck both films up irrevocably. Still, you may catch me daydreaming about it from time to time.

    Scavenger Hunt #26
    9. A film by a director who's made both documentary and fiction films.

    A comedy black as midnight on a moonless night, The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call is surprising good and left me feeling rather hopeful. Although dealing with some really heavy subjects, it never gets too bleak (mostly thanks to Nic Cage being ridiculous). There are so many films out there with similar story lines, people who get tangled up in addictions and do some…

    Cage may not be able to "act", but he is willing to go the distance.

    the film is quite self-referential: not only is the music from the end of Stroszek used, there is also a genuine Kinski shot in the casino scene (Cage swings out in front of the camera all wide eyed--it's pretty damn funny)! also great are the moments that are clearly 100% Herzog (the story about the spoon), and the moments that are clearly 100% Cage (the…

    Класс, оказывается Кейдж иногда снимается в хорошем кино. Один крокодил вздыхающий о убитом собрате чего стоит.

    Nicholas Cage from 2003-17 has gone from one cinematic atrocity to another, but this is just an absolutely brilliant and totally mad film floating in the middle of a sea of crap! I mean who ok'd this, why did they do it? It's just crazy to think a sequel to the Abel Ferrera original exists at all, even more so that it's a success! It's a great black comedy.
