io9: [url=]Nic Cage Explains His Philosophy Of Acting[/url]

Los Angeles Times: [url=,0,6536527.story]Two quite different films, 17 years apart, share a title and little else but go to equally risky extremes.[/url]

Slant: [url=]DVD - The sound is solid if mixed a little low, but the video, like Nic Cage's character, constantly flirts with disaster: Interior daylight scenes look almost smashing, but combing is abundant during most exteriors, and shadow delineation is poor, with shadows appearing pixilated throughout, most embarrassingly in the opening scene of McDonagh and his partner pulling nudie pictures out of a prison locker. 2.5/5 Stars[/url]

Audiophile Audition: [url=]Blu-Ray - The Making Of documentary is interesting and the Blu-ray transfer is excellent. Rating: *****[/url]

Home Media Magazine: [url=]Blu-Ray - What makes the movie increasingly funny (and intentionally so, make no mistake) is that the further we go, the more we see we’re on the way to a tidy and even happy resolution — though via a twisted path where the “i’s” are often crossed and the “t’s” dotted.[/url]

Hollywood Chicago: [url=]Blu-Ray - Surprisingly, “Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans” totally works as a clever, dark, twisted thriller that not only justifies its existence but is that rare thing: pure, unadulterated, non-melodramatic entertainment for grown-ups.[/url]

DVDizzy: [url=]DVD - Bad Lieutenant looks as good as any new film, as its DVD's 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen picture satisfies in clarity, cleanliness, and detail. The Dolby 5.1 soundtrack gets noticed in only a few places, but it is sufficient throughout. A basic English stereo track is also offered. [/url]

Film School Rejects: [url=]Exclusive: Werner Herzog and the Bad Alligator[/url]

The Gainesville Sun: [url=]The movie does get a little too weird and art-house for its own good from time to time, but all in all this is a strong film and one of the best DVDs so far this year.[/url]

Examiner: [url=]Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans is Nicolas Cage's best movie since Adaptation [/url]

High Def Disc News: [url=]Overall Verdict – Disturbing Film / Great Presentation[/url] (Great pair of high-res screecaps with Ru)

Isthmus: [url=]Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans is a weird title, but a great, crazy film. Its greatness is, in fact, inseparable from its craziness, or from Nicolas Cage's fantastic, raging, brilliantly over-the-top performance as the bad madman cop, Terence McDonough. [/url]

Pompous Film Snob: [url=]Expanded Review: “Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call – New Orleans” – 2009. Dir. Werner Herzog Review: 9.5/10[/url]

/Film: [url=]Director Werner Herzog gives the film a wonderfully subversive, darkly comedic edge, but when it comes to Cage, he doesn’t even attempt to harness the guy, instead opting to point him in the direction he needs to go and letting him do his thing. The final result is kind of magical.[/url]

DVD Talk: [url=]DVD Highly Recommended[/url]

Direct to Video Connoisseur: [url=]I think most of my readers would enjoy this. Best way to know: if you hated National Treasure, you'll like Bad Lieutenant: PC-NO. I also think, if you're a big fan of the Ferrara/Keitel version, you should watch this. It's no cheap knock off, this is it's own movie, and it's interesting to compare the two. If I was going to pick, I'd say the earlier one is the more complete film, making it better in my eyes.[/url]

DVD Verdict: [url=]Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans is a lot of fun, but it's just not the classic of crazy it might have been. Worth a look, though[/url]

Beyond Hollywood: [url=]The Bad Lieutenant is satisfying in ways few movies are. And whatever you, don't think of the picture as another pointless remake, think of it as an improvement over the original. A huge improvement.[/url]

Collider: [url=]DVD...a crazy, satisfying, enjoyable mindfuck of a ride.[/url]

2 Snaps: [url=]Granted, Bad Lieutenant isn’t for everybody (a remake in name only from the 1992 Abel Ferrara neo-classic featuring a raped nun and a bare-assed Harvey Keitel), but if you can stomach it, you’re in for one of the dementedly loopiest movies from last year.[/url]

Rough Edges: [url=]This is a pretty good film and worth watching, if you like grittier than usual cop movies with a few offbeat touches. [/url]

Movieweb: [url=]Blu-Ray - Overall, Bad Lieutenant: Port to Call New Orleans is an enjoyable film and it does feature Cage at his best. The video presentation can be a bit spotty at times but the audio finishes wraps it up with a nice bow. The extras are the main downside here since there really is nothing worth watching on them.[/url]

The Vault of Buncheness: [url=]My girl fairuza Balk turns in a brief appearance as Heidi, a corrupt and kinky highway cop pal of the protagonist, and her look while wearing naught but black undies and her highway-fuzz boots is quite memorable. More prominent roles for her, please! [/url]

Economic Voice: [url=]A very dark comedy which is a mind bender of a film, Bad Lieutenant is Cage’s best screen performance in years and is also an assured but provocative piece of film making from the ever good Herzog.[/url]

The Yorker: [url=]Werner Herzog recently claimed to be the ‘underground mainstream’, something that unfortunately isn’t true based on the profits and how well-known his films are. But having seen Bad Lieutenant, you cannot help but wish he was, since they would be infinitely preferable to most mainstream films. This is certainly one of the most original, surreal and entertaining films you will see this year.[/url]

Times Online: [url=]A law unto himself: Like the corrupt cop at the heart of his latest film, Werner Herzog isn’t afraid to rip up the rulebook[/url]

The Guardian: [url=]Blu Ray: The film delivers a payoff that turns the whole thing into a long, dark joke from Herzog. He's making fun of a lot of similar films here, but his joke wouldn't work, or be so funny, if it weren't for Nicolas Cage's return to form.[/url]
