Bad Lieutenant

“I’m sorry, Lord. I’ve done so many bad things.”

As rough and unapologetic as any semi-mainstream ’90s film, this hard-edged neo-noir gives Harvey Keitel one of his best roles.

He’s a miserable pile of crap masquerading as a cop, only awoken (for a moment) from his self-induced stupor of drugs, drink, and corruption by a nun’s brutal assault.

Keitel hides nothing, his character going full monty while also baring a scorched soul.

It’s riveting work in a film which should be seen in its original NC-17 form, not the chopped-up edition commissioned back then by Evil Empire twits at Blockbuster.
