Werner Herzog (not very well-known) tells the story of a morally skew and crack addicted police Lieutenant in New Orleans. What follows is excellent humour, amazing and flawless plot unravelling and all other things that makes a movie great.
The biggest surprise however lies in Cage's performance, whom has been cursed by horrible film choices for the last few years. Cage is brutally fantastic as the protagonist, playing his role with so much conviction that I could swear Cage was playing himself. Eva Mendes surprises again, with Val Kilmer an co delivering great supporting roles.
One of my favourite movies of the last decade and one of the most entertaining things i've seen since Kill Bill. You have to see this is you're into weirdly wonderful movies.
