Bad Lieutenant. 1992. USA. Directed by Abel Ferrara. 35mm. 96 min.

Ferrara’s signature work, scripted with his important early collaborator Zoe Lund and Paul Calderon, is grounded in the remarkable conviction of Harvey Keitel’s performance as a tragically corrupt, drug- and sex-addicted cop burdened with Catholic guilt.
