28 years ago this scene from Abel Ferrara‘s Bad Lieutenant was par for the course. Harvey Keitel‘s bad cop is just another felon, etc. The little girl might report the details to her father (or grandfather) when he returns, but Keitel will skate regardless. Could anyone make such a film today? Probably not. If they did the two teenage thieves could no longer be African American, of course. How about young white ayeholes with ugly tats and shaved heads?
