The weekend’s rain was perfect weather for hunkering down and watching Werner Herzog‘s Bad Lieutenant on DVD. Good film, lousy title. Set in post-Katrina New Orleans, it won’t do much for tourism.
Nicholas Cage rocks in the role of a bad cop, snorting & extorting his way though the mean streets. Herzog sprinkles the violence with some absurdist halucinations, shades of David Lynch. Neo-Noir at its best.
By the way, this is Post #301, so I forgot to celebrate the milestone. When I hit 400 we’ll throw a party.
