The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans

Werner Herzog at Film Independent Forum

user
Werner Herzog deletes all of his unused footage when he's done making a movie. Why? 1: Storage takes up too much space; and 2) "A carpenter doesn't sit on his shavings either." This means that he doesn't have the option to go back and re-edit films. "I accept all my errors, and my films have many of them." You have to accept that the "child has a stutter, a squint, a limp." The great filmmaker delivered many gems and to a packed house of filmmakers and asp...

The Bad Lieutenant: A bad movie or cult in the making?

user
THE ONGOING publicity surrounding the insults being traded by Werner Herzog and Abel Ferrara over whether “The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans” is a remake of Ferrara’s 1992 original or not, maybe of interest to the industry, and particularly to film critics, but is of little interest to movie-goers. Both versions tell the story of a drug-addled cop trying to solve a case of murder, but the interpretation is as different as chalk from cheese. Herzog, more highly thought of for his...

Making worlds at Venice 66th Film Festival - Nicolas Cage, the Bad Lieutenant . 4th September 2009.

Nicolas Cage commented that film work was like painting and music. In Werner Herzog’s The Bad Lieutenant he takes a leap of faith to rescue a drowning soul, injures his back, and thereafter shapes his character in a disfigured pose “head ahead with eyes in front” and descends into his own world marked by desire, compulsion, and conscience.  Nesta Morgan

53 rd San Sebastian opened with several bangs

user
The Donostia-San Sebastian film festival on the incredibly picturesque North Spanish coast, ("NAZIOARTEKO ZINEMALDIA" in the exotic Basque language of the region), has opened heavily "front loaded" as the saying goes these days, which means that many of the big guns, films with high prize potential, have already been fired off in the first few days. The festival opener was, appropriately, "Obaba", one of the most eagerly awaited Spanish films of the year based on a Basque language best seller b...
