"I found myself wondering for the endless hours this film lasts: what does it add to 1992 Abel Ferrara's Bad Lieutenant? It is more or less the same film, which would be fine if at some level, artistically or dramatically, there was something to be gained. I am simply not convinced that anything was added on any level. It was superbly acted but then again is that enough? The actors in it are amazing so they would be excellent anyhow. The film is not without merits but it could have done better."
