There's weird, slippery comfort in the universe of Werner Herzog's Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleansvice has no consequence, little old ladies are not sacred, everything is funny. It's an exhilarating lawlessness. The ever-hilarious and be-hairpieced Nicolas Cage is Terence McDonagh, the titular cop-turned-junkie-turned-hunchback-turned-hero, whose fumbling reign of terror across both sides of the law involves imaginary iguanas, mountains of cocaine, Xzibit, and the world's best crazy crack laugh. "Whatever I take is prescription. Except for the heroin." (See Movie Times: thestranger.com/film.)
