Bad Lieutenant is essentially a character study of the darkest kind. Our subject is a white, male New York City police officer. He lives in a nice, outter city home, has a wife and grade-school aged children. This is not an overly-priviledged life, but it is obviously a comfortable one, the kind that generally require certain advantages to end up living. And yet this man is so bad. Shockingly, alm... read more

A great movie

Back then, Harvey Keitel and Abel Ferrara were probably at the best of their career. I remember when I watched it (I was like 16 years old), I think I never saw something similar before. The tone was so dark, immoral and it showed no mercy towards its main character and still, it was just fascinating to watch. In my opinion, it is a great and a very bleak picture but it is not for everyone. Stil, ... read more

Bad Lieutenant is like Mean Streets gone to rot, with the same manic energy fueled by rock ’n’ roll and narcotics, another story of New York City, Catholic guilt, and starring Harvey Keitel. Between the two, I think Scorsese’s opus of morally confused hoods is greater, but that doesn’t mean Bad Lieutenant is a slouch or fails to carry its own merits. It’s more like the sense of “more i... read more

This gritty, visceral crime drama puts an out-of-control police lieutenant on a collision course with disaster. A survivor of the streets, this junkie, thief and killer is forced to confront his private demons when he investigates the rape of a nun.

30 From 92: My Favorite Films From 1992 (30 movies items)

" The Bad Lieutenant isn't standard Keitel. This is intense Keitel ( and, as anyone who's seen this movie knows, it's also BRAVE Keitel..... yikes! ). Harvey as a raw, gritty, corrupt, perverted and redempting avenger. And those are alot adjectives to try and fill in just one role. Something that very few actors manage to pull off (and if there's any kind of pun in that statement, believe me, it was unintentional)."
