Unclean Lieutenant Part I: Rocks a Callin'

The original Bad Lieutenant featuring the cherished H. Keitel is much cleaner than the Werner Herzog 2005 version (no disrespect to Herzogs worldwide). If you haven't seen the original yet, its a must-see. Its one of those movies that starts with pain and suffering and things only get worse as the movie progresses. Just like life. Love those kinds of movies.

In the first frame he's handcuffed two crackheads together so he could steal a few of their rocks, at gunpoint. He's nice enough to share with them. Then he goes into a church begging for forgiveness to what he thinks is Jesus but is actually just a random old black dude.

"I'm sorry. I've done so many bad things."

"I tried!"
