Bad Lieutenant by Werner Herzog
  

Synopsis

Bad Lieutenant by Werner Herzog

In Werner Herzog's highly anticipated new film, Nicolas Cage plays a man as devoted to police work as he is to scoring drugs. A high-functioning addict who is a deeply intuitive, fearless detective, he ranges over the beautiful ruins of New Orleans with authority and abandon. Adding to his tumultuous life is the prostitute he loves (played by Eva Mendes). Together they descend into their own world marked by desire, compulsion, and conscience. The result is a singular masterpiece of filmmaking: equally sad and manicly humorous. In this book devoted to the film, renowned photographer Lena Herzog's documentation of the film captures the uniqueness of the director's vision, the set, and the actors. The volume also includes the script, written by Billy Finkelstein, reworked by Herzog.
