Bad Lieutenant is a film starring Harvey Keitel in the title role. The movie, directed by Abel Ferrara and written by Zoe Lund, is a crime-drama that follows one detective's downward spiral into drug-induced madness. The film begins with the Lieutenant dropping off his children at school, and going to work. In between those two the Lieutenant does a few lines of cocaine, and sets the bar for his behavior throughout the film. His life is punctuated by horrible crime scenes, theft of evidence, extreme drug use, and a loss of control over his personal habits, his temper, and even his bodily functions.

The film lacks a central plot, but seems to follow the Lieutenant in several loosely connected vignettes that display his horrid, immoral behavior. He's also shown placing a bet against the Mets, and he loses continually as he doubles and then triples down on his losses.
