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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: When Abel Ferrara calls something bad, better believe it: he means business.
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.
Fresh: Abel Ferrara's uncompromising Bad Lieutenant is a harrowing journey with a corrupt N.Y. cop sinking into the lower depths.
Rotten: Members of the gutter-al elite will be the sole survivors.
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.
