Bad Lieutenant: New Orleans (2009)

If you like or can stand two hours of Nick Cage at his most cagess, this movie will thoroughly entertain you. Terrence McDonagh is a New Orleans detective who redefines “dirty cop”. His girlfriend Eva Mendes is a prostitute who shares his addictions. Terrence gets into all kinds of trouble in his constant quest for more drugs. Val Kilmer also makes an appearance as his partner. Just when it seems Cage has dug himself into an inescapable hole he walks out on a path of carefully constructed dominoes  Rotten Tomatoes gave it 87% and it was critically acclaimed. Audiences did not agree and it was under $2 million domestic and $10.5 million in total. So it’s a great movie that no one saw.

Four Stars
