It's hard to get behind either the story or character for me - this corrupt cop who seems to make all the wrong choices whether it's drugs or getting deeper and deeper into debt while his family is all but forgotten - yet despite the unpleasant nature, Harvey Keitel gives an excellent performance. Uncomfortably watchable.

Typical of some of the odd choices Keitel made earlier on in his career. Shocking, violent and powerful, but his character can hardly be described as sympathetic! An uncomfortable, uncompromising examination of corruption.

He's not really a bad person, he just makes bad choices. In this film, Harvey is an all around bad cop with his focus in the wrong places. He's more woried about digging himself deeper in debt with his friends by betting on the world series and having dirty women give him drugs and sex than actually solving a case. However, when his new case involves a raped nun, we see him open up more. He gains a moral structure and has a new outlook on life by the end of the film. It's interesting to see the kind of man he turns into and the different and suprising choices he makes in the end.

I really don't like Abel Ferrara, and the story wasn't that great to me.

Erlösung

Our Daily Free Stream: Abel Ferrara - Bad Lietenant. Bad Lieutenant, die Geschichte eines Mannes, der sich unwohl fühlt in seinem Körper, der tiefe seelische Qualen spürt. Ein Mann voller Furcht und Verlangen. Er befindet sich im letzten Stadum seiner Kokainsucht, versucht sich zusätzlich mit Alkohol auf Hochtouren zu bringen. Er ist ganz allein, ganz ohne Liebe - bereit sogar für eine Berührung zu zahlen. Harvey Keitel spielt diesen Mann mit solch beeindruckender Ehrlichkeit, dass wir hier eine der mutigsten Performances überhaupt erleben! Tatsächlich gab es in der Geschichte nur wenige Schauspieler, die bereit waren, sich in einem solchen Licht zu zeigen! Der Bad Lieutenant hat keinerlei Illusionen über seine eigene Person. Er ist schlecht und weiss das auch. In jeder möglichen Situatio...
