Nicolas Cage in "Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call -- New Orleans"

Overlooked and Underrated Week concludes at Trailers from Hell with screenwriter Josh Olson introducing Werner Herzog's beautifully bizarre Nicolas Cage-starrer, "Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call -- New Orleans."

Herzog's non-sequel to Abel Ferrera's Bad Lieutenant is one of the wildest flyers a director has taken with someone else's material, especially considering it's completely divorced from the original. It's certainly weird, and not since star Nic Cage devoured a cockroach in Vampire's Kiss has he gone so far out on an acting limb--even sawing it off as you watch. And has anyone noticed that Val Kilmer's co-starring role seems to have almost vanished in the editing room?
