    Synopsis


    Bad Lieutenant
    If police lieutenant Harvey Keitel's life could get any more sordid, he could probably sell tickets. The least of his vices is gambling, which has gotten him in Dutch with the mob. He abuses his body with drugs and his soul with hookers, and now he's turned to exploiting teenage girls for sex. Keitel is forced to reassess his life while investigating the rape of a nun. Director Abel Ferrara co-wrote the screenplay with Zoe Lund, who as Zoe Tamerlis starred in Ferrara's cult classic Ms. 45. A soundtrack tune by rapper Schoolly D, which was included in the initial release of Bad Lieutenant, featured a sample from Led Zeppelin which was used without permission; the song has since been excised from the soundtrack. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      A great movie looking into how far someone can fall into their vices and trying to redeem themselves. As the Lieutenant is dealing with cases and crimes committed and trying to figure it out he also is dealing with how own issues. As he also tries to save himself but also be willing to forgive.

      A lot of people would strongly dislike this film for being so depressing and disturbing. It is very well directed and Keitel depicts a cop whose life is spiraling completely out of control. Excellent film for anyone that wants to feel better about their life. Great movie!

      The film is excellent and Keitel's perfomance is superb. Only comment is I would've have liked if the film had a 5.1 soundtrack especially with it being blu-ray, is in 2.1 (DTS HD i think, but 2.1).

      Talk about over the top! Harvey Keitel's performance as the titular Lieutenant is as deep as they come. And while the story is a little sordid, it makes for a interesting tale of redemption!

      Harvey Keitel's at the top of his game here playing a degenerate cop with some serious behavior problems. It's a very well acted flick worth a viewing if you haven't already seen it.

      Bad Lieutenant offers Harvey Keitel's tour de force performance as a drugged up cop in deep debt and out of control.
