Gritty, raw, disturbing, and powerful. Just a few words that describe Abel Ferrara's provocative Bad Lieutenant. It chronicles the downward spiral of a drug addict cop investigating the rape of a nun. It contains one of the best performances ever captured on film by Harvey Keitel. Ferrara's masterpiece is a story of the evils of man and one mans quest for redemption. You'll never forget this movie.
