As unspectacular as The Ghost is (see below) seeing in the cinema did afford me one great pleasure: A pre-movie trailer revealing that Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call – New Orleans is finally getting a UK 2010 release sometime in May.
For fear of sounding like a stuck record I’ll refrain from telling you how great it is again but if you’re in any doubt you can check out our original review here.
I’d post the trailer as well if it weren’t for the fact that it wasn’t very good. It made me feel like I needed to stand up and start defending the movie from the rest of the audience.
Until I remembered that this was why I have a blog.
FYI: Like The Ghost (which was originally called The Ghost Writer) Bad Lieutenant‘s title has been shortened to just that: Bad Lieutenant.
This is a shame because it makes it look like it owes a lot more to the Harvey Keitel film than it actually does, and even though they shortened the title by five words they’ve still left Leuiten Luiten Lieutenant in there.
