Critic Reviews of "Bad Lieutenant"Hollywood ReporterApril 09, 2008
Members of the gutter-al elite will be the sole survivors.Entertainment WeeklyApril 09, 2008
Bad Lieutenant is finally a pulp parable of sin, addiction, and redemption, a movie that, like its subversive hero, revels in the pleasure -- and danger -- of going too far.VarietyApril 09, 2008
Abel Ferrara's uncompromising Bad Lieutenant is a harrowing journey with a corrupt N.Y. cop sinking into the lower depths.Chicago ReaderApril 09, 2008
There's an undeniable formal elegance in the way Ferrara, who coauthored the script with Zoe Lund, frames and holds certain shots, and Keitel certainly gives his all.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
Ferrara allows his star to dictate the pace, and is rewarded with a performance of extraordinary, terrifying honesty.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
When Abel Ferrara calls something bad, better believe it: he means business.ColeSmithey.comSeptember 26, 2010
Alongside "Reservoir Dogs" Able Ferrara's 1992 tour-de-force crime drama provides the epic showcase for Harvey Keitel's impressive acting abilities.Matt's Movie ReviewsJuly 06, 2010
The combination of Keitel, New York City, and the Catholic Church reminds of Martin Scorsese's Mean Streets. Yet Bad Lieutenant is much more disturbing and in your face, and successfully portrays the destruction of the soul.Slant MagazineAugust 05, 2009
Ferrara was in the right place at the right time to make Bad Lieutenant.Filmcritic.comMay 13, 2009
Keitel's performance is perhaps the needed counterpoint to Christopher Walken's ice-cold overlord in Ferrara's visionary crime opus King of New YorkFilm4April 09, 2008
The work of a warped wizard.Empire MagazineApril 09, 2008
Keitel is onscreen for pretty much the entire movie and clearly relishes the opportunity of playing someone not so much teetering on the abyss as leaping off with a grand piano manacled to each ankle.
