Films of the Day : Bad Lieutenant and Holy Smoke

Bad Lieutenant and Holy Smoke were both, fortunately or unfortunately—depending on how you see these things—on television today. Bad Lieutenant is probably the stronger of the two films. This means it's a strong fucking film. Harvey Keitel proves in each film that he is one of the least egotistical actors now or ever. This freedom he gives himself to be human in every way—whether beautiful or ugly—lends his performances rare power and poignance.
