At first, it seemed like the world didn't need a remake of Abel Ferrara's 1992 cult crime film. Then, German madman Werner Herzog (Aguirre, the Wrath of God; Fitzcarraldo; Nosferatu the Vampyre) climbed on board to direct and brought Nic Cage with him. Cage gives his most appropriately over-the-top performance in a decade as a drug- and gambling-addicted detective in post-Katrina New Orleans investigating the killing of five Senegalese immigrants. Not so much a remake of the original as a rumination on the same pulpy, sleazy, funny, weirdly awesome territory.See also:Notable Werner Herzog titles from the Netflix Watch Instantly world by Devin D.
