The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call - New Orleans

The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call - New Orleans ★★★★

From what I understand, director Werner Herzog wanted to call this simply Port of Call - New Orleans, but the studio and screenwriter chose to attach the Bad Lieutenant to make this seem like some kind of remake, even though they are almost two completely different movies.

This is a dark comedy, be it intentionally or not. Nic Cage is insane, there is quite a lot of drug usage, weird situations, cooky characters and bad actors, upbeat music, and iguanas. This was a great way to start the year: with a solid laugh and with Cage's hilarious accents.
