I have been terribly disappointed with the choice of movies a talented actor like Nicolas Cage was making in the past few years; Giving us a bunch of silly, boring (but blockbuster) movies about seeing futures or hunting treasures.
He is back. Though Bad Lieutenant is a bit over the top, I am happy to see glimpses of vintage Cage here. Story is about a cop who is a little on the edge, does drugs/gambling, sort-of corrupt, as title says, bad, investigating murder of a family related to drug pedaling. As one critic called it, unhinged performance from Cage.
Though it might fetch him a nomination or two, since the movie didnt do well at the BO, there are good chances that Cage will go back to the money hunt again. That, I feel, is the real bad part of the movie.
