Good early week to everyone. It's Tuesday and that means some new movies have come our way, and in turn, yours! Here's what we've done gone and got for y'all!
The 1992 version of Bad Lieutenant directed by Abel Ferrara is one of my fave American films of that decade. It's so gritty you feel like you need to shower after all is said and done. So many memorable scenes, including one of a full frontal strung out Harvey Keitel crying like a baby. Trust me, once you see it, you'll never forget it. Not that a naked Keitel in a movie is particularly unique, that darn nudist.
Much controversy surrounds Werner Herzog's remake, not the least of which was his choice of casting Nicholas Cage in the lead role. I haven't watched this one yet, so I'll reserve personal judgement until I get a chance to check it out. From what I understand, it's different enough from the original that is stands on it's own. Here's the trailer now!
YES MEN FIX THE WORLD
I have seen this one and as with the first Yes Men documentary, I thoroughly enjoyed it! For those unfamiliar with these cats, The Yes Men are political pranksters who take their wickedly good trickery to great lengths, generating elaborate mischief with the intention of exposing corporate greed and the actions of nasty people. Very satisfying viewing. More please!
