"Bad Lieutenant" at the Brattle


Though one of my favorite films of 2009, Werner Herzog's "Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans" didn't get much in the way of accolades. No Golden Globes, no Oscar nominations. It did get nominated for Best Film, Director and Actor by the Chlotrudis people -- we'll find out if it wins at their  award ceremony at the Brattle Theatre on March 21, an event I highly recommend. And it did get my "Where's Whitey?" award. But I think it was deserving of more.

You can judge for yourself when it screens tonight as part of the Recent Raves series at the Brattle, which focuses on Boston Society of Film Critics winners. I'll be introducing the film which, despite my best efforts, didn't win any BSFC awards either.
