Moments #1 - Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call New Orleans (2009)

Moments of transcendent filmic perfection (aka shit that made me chuckle).......

The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call - New Orleans (2009)
Director: Werner Herzog
Cast: Nicolas Cage, Val Kilmer, Eva Mendes, etc.

In between bouts of slapping around grannies, sweating with back pain, losing money betting on sports and stealing (and consuming) copious amounts of drugs Lt. Terence McDonagh (Nic Cage) gets in a bit of actual police work; while surveilling a building across the street with fellow officers he notices something a little out of place in the apartment -

Terence McDonagh: [Hallucinating] What are these fuckin' iguanas doing on my coffee table.
Stevie Pruit: There ain't no iguana.
Terence McDonagh: ...Yeah, there are.
Stevie Pruit: There ain't no iguana.
Terence McDonagh: What the fuck is that?
[taps it]
Terence McDonagh: Fuckin' iguana.
Iguana: [Singing] Please release me, let me go. For I don't love you anymore.



  1. Despite a handful of brilliant films/preformances he's made a serious amount of shite over the years. Bad Lieutenant is very good though as is Kick Ass, don't be put off by the Cage!
