On paper, Werner Herzog’s most recent dramatic movie is a cop’s story, told in the wake of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. In execution, it’s a loopy, mad ride, that starts off and rarely slows for you to catch up, comprehend or rationalize what you have just seen.
So I didn’t rush out to see this one. And I was surprised at myself, I was a die-hard X-Files fan growing up, and I dug the first feature film, though I will admit, following Duchovny’s exit from the series, I stopped tuning in.
Val Kilmer and Xzibit have joined the ranks with Nicolas Cage and Eva Mendes in the new Werner Herzog-directed remake, ‘Bad Lieutenant.’ Cage plays a cop, with Kilmer as his partner. Xzibit will be playing his nemesis. Xzibit will be next seen in the X-Files sequel out at the end of July.
