Editor's Note
Harvey Keitel stars as a nameless New York cop, hopelessy addicted to drugs, gambling, and sex, in this intense, hallucinatory portrait of sin and redemption by Abel Ferrara. The film follows the lieutenant as he makes his way to various crime scenes, concerned only with taking bets from his fellow cops on the outcome of the ongoing National League playoffs. As his bad decisions drive him deeper into debt, his life becomes a surreal hell, with a constant intake of crack, coke, heroin, and booze eroding what remains of his sanity. An investigation into the rape of a nun (Frankie Thorn) leads to his spiritual breakdown at the church crime scene, where he sees Jesus and the road to his salvation. This gutsy, highly original tale is one of Ferrara's most perfectly realized films and a pinnacle in the career of Keitel, whose performance transcends the screen in its sheer bravery.

Professional Reviews

Sight and Sound
"...[A] terrifyingly powerful film....Visually visceral....It's narrative heart is palatably spiritual..." 02/01/1993 p.40

New York Times
"?A film that would seem outrageously, unforgivably lurid if it were not also somehow perfectly isncere?.Keitel gives the Lieutenant role his all?" 11/20/1992 p.C15

Chicago Sun-Times
"...[The film] takes spirituality and morality more seriously than most films do. And in the bad lieutenant, Keitel gives us one of the great screen performances in recent years..." 01/22/1993 p.37

Total Film
"...Uncut, unique and uncompromising..." 08/01/2003 p.122

A.V. Club
"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." 07/29/2009
