Special Guests: Edward Pressman
& William M. Finkelstein
This week we’re talking about Bad Lieutenant – the original and the sort of loose re-make by filmmakers Abel Ferrara and Werner Herzog. The 1992 original stars Harvey Keitel as the Bad Lieutenant in question who gets in over his head with drugs, prostitutes and a gambling debt. The 2009 The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans stars Nicolas Cage as the Bad Lieutenant in the days around and after Hurricane Katrina. He plays a cop who gets in over his head with drugs, prostitutes and a gambling debt.
Our guests are producer of both films – Edward Pressman and the screenwriter of The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, William Finkelstein
Guest co-host this week is Patrick Bromley of the F This Movie podcast.
