Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans

Film & Video

October 10th, 2009  2 Comments

Like all films that take place in New Orleans, or use the city as its backdrop, this film hit and miss when portraying the city. However, it hits where it needs to when being true to the city I found.

The Accents:
Nothing overblown. No cher. Not a city over-run by cajuns who know everyone’s cousin.

Getting from point A to point B:
The geography was correct accept for a few liberties that fit well with the story.

The Background:
The buildings, the details, the locations in central city were all spot on and honest.

The Story:
I am not sure how they got the go ahead from the NOPD to film a story that showed what could be viewed as a very pour portrayal of the police force. However, the story was very interesting from beginning to end.

The Pace:
It was about a 2 hour movie and felt like it was 150 minutes. They needd to edit and cut some of the 3rd 4th of the film. Starts strong and has some great moments but drags at moments.

Overall:
Go see the film if you like to see the city on the big screen and Nicholas Cage nails the character and gives it real flare. He has a knack for the drugged, drunk and loony. Fun to watch. You could call the film Raising Las Vegas for the loony, cracked out combo he had from beginning to end.

Cold Blooded:
Why the lizard and gator 1st person camera angles Mr. Herzog? Just curious.

    You need a writer / director that's from New Orleans. Not just more of this Hollywood and New York pimping out of our city. I'm tired of it. I'm from here. I was born here. I will die here. I will make films here about the people, the places, the music, the food, the culture, and I will portray it accurately when I have the resources and the funding to do so. Mark my word.
