Bad Lieutenant Geregisseerd door Abel Ferrara

Recensies

Ferrara’s tale of sin and redemption has a raw, unvarnished power that’s embodied by Keitel’s performance, and the years have preserved it as an equally potent street-level look at a city.

Far from those films that are content to illustrate an explicit situation with more or less original incidents, Bad Lieutenant works upon the slow translation of an affect of agony within the form of an image-story. This is why the film is significant: it considers the image not only as a plastic entity but above all as a spiritual exercise.

[Ferrara] has come up with his own brand of supersleaze, in a film that would seem outrageously, unforgivably lurid if it were not also somehow perfectly sincere.
