DVD Debut: Fast and Furious, Bad Lieutenant

Bad LieutenantDVD Debut on VH1.com isn’t happy about the Nicolas Cage remake.

Speaking of naked Harvey Keitel … The Life on Mars star does some of his, er, barest work in this 1992 freak-out from Abel Ferrara. Like De Niro’s Taxi Driver on meth, his copper is at the end of a very frayed rope. He’s running low on drugs and booze, resorting to prostitutes to get it up, leching on teenage joy drivers, and in the middle of one helluva losing streak. The rape of a nun, however, might offer a second chance. Seventeen years later, it’s a can of turps to Scorsese’s champagne, but still righteously shocking.
