NC-17 | | Crime, Drama, Thriller
While investigating a young nun's rape, a corrupt New York City police detective, with a serious drug and gambling addiction, tries to change his ways and find forgiveness and redemption.
The song, "Pledging My Love" by Johnny Ace, is in this movie, starring Harvey Keitel. This song is also in Mean Streets (1973), also starring Keitel.
I have forgiven them.
The Lieutenant: But do you have the right? You're not the only woman in the world. You're not even the only nun. Your forgiveness will leave blood in its wake. What if these guys do something like this again? To other women, other virgins? Old...
When the Lieutenant stops the Jersey girls he is talking to them through the open driver's side window. When the camera angle changes it is clear the window is rolled up.
The theatrical version featured a rap song (Schoolly D's 'Signifying Rapper') based on a riff from Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir" without permission. Subsequent video releases omit the song from the soundtrack.
