The trailer for “Bad Lieutenant” employs a clever bit of misdirection, setting the film up as a harrowing, topical — Hurricane Katrina! — police drama featuring a snarky cop — Nicholas Cage — who injures himself performing an honorable act. But once the title card flashes the name of legendary director Werner Herzog, you know some crazy shit is going to go down. Indeed it does, with Cage snorting coke, maniacally fist-bumping gangsters and having hallucinations of iguanas. Now that he’s done treasure hunting, it’s going to be fun to see Cage tripping balls.
