About the Movie

He has survived on the streets for twenty years. He's a gambler...a thief...a junkie...a killer and a cop. Now he's investigating the most shocking case of his life, and as he moves closer to the truth his self-destructive past is closing in. Harvey Keitel gives a searing performance as an out-of-control police detective on a collision course with disaster in director Abel Ferrara's brilliant and deeply disturbing melodrama.

Fresh: Bad Lieutenant is finally a pulp parable of sin, addiction, and redemption, a movie that, like its subversive hero, revels in the pleasure -- and danger -- of going too far. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Abel Ferrara's uncompromising Bad Lieutenant is a harrowing journey with a corrupt N.Y. cop sinking into the lower depths. – Lawrence Cohn, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Members of the gutter-al elite will be the sole survivors. – Duane Byrge, Hollywood Reporter, Jul 7, 2010

This is a great movie. I really think that Harvey Keitel is a good actor; for instance, take the movies Taxi Driver or Resevoir Dogs, some of the best movies ever made. Enjoy!


This is in the true spirt of independent films. Harvey Keitel gives a beautiful showboat of a performance in this film. He is simply amazing, as is the story of self destruction and redemption. I would not reccomend this version though, if you truly want to subject yourself to this brilliant piece of art, you need to check out the NC-17 version.

Sick Movie too good for itunes

Intense and shocking.This Movie is Tough as nails,I assume its been edited of its nudity but not its violence or crack smoking cops.One of HK best.Well worth the $$$ but for Adults Only.
