Harvey Keitel is great, but the film itself never really comes together.

Abel Ferrara is one of those directors whose personality and real-life story is much more interesting than the movies he wound up making. Bad Lieutenant unfortunately, falls right in line with Abel's other works. Solid premise, memorable tour-de-force lead performance, but a poor screenplay that ultimately favors disturbing imagery and shock value over proper narrative and character development.
