Full-On Unhinged Crazy-Cakes Nic Cage is Back!

And we start with this: The trailer for Warner Herzog's Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, starring Nic Cage. It's an update of the original directed by Abel Ferrara and starred Harvey Keitel, and a year ago, when Dan announced that they were making this movie, he wrote: "Who knows what direction Herzog will take the picture; maybe he'll have Cage ride around L.A. on a grizzly bear."

That wasn't as far fetched a notion as you'd have thought. The preliminaries: The film follows a corrupt New Orleans police officer as he investigates the killing of five Senegalese immigrants. William Finkelstein wrote the script.

The awesome: It looks gloriously awful. It's Nic Cage in full-on unhinged mode, which is the only Nic Cage I like. He's bringing back a little of that H.I. McDunnough spirit and, as bad as campy-bad as it looks, I haven't actually been as excited about a Nic Cage movie as I am about this one in a decade. I can't explain it. The whole thing looks laughable, but this is the Nic Cage I fucking dig to death.

You gotta see it to believe it, folks. To the break of dawn, baby:
