    1991's Cape Fear is a remarkable thriller. With awesome performances by Robert De Niro, Juliette Lewis, Nick Nolte, and Jessica Lange, this film left a great impression on me and maybe because I watched this one first, I like this remake better than the original from 1962. Martin Scorsese's direction in this film is possibly more conventional compared to his most more praised and compelling achievements; nevertheless, he was still able to craft with this film an absolutely entertaining, intense, and exciting piece of suspense.

    The themes of how evil can corrupt anything that comes near it are effective, but the kinetic camerawork is so distracting that it dispels any sort of palpable suspense. De Niro's performance is also wildly over the top and the climax is plain irritating.

    I finally managed to see this awesomely disturbing piece of cinema. What a thrilling ride it was. DeNiro was excellent as the psychotic stalker. The Hitchcock references were all over the place in this movie and I think that's what makes this movie so damn good actually. Cult movie that everyone needs to see!

    One of the joys of rewatching films I haven't seen in so many years, is discovering how creepiness and creepy truths are in more creepy places than I saw the first time.

    I've seen a lot of people bashing this movie and calling it Scorsese's weakest. You know what? I couldn't disagree more. First off, this is far from Scorsese's weakest. Sure, it is no Raging Bull or Goodfellas, but it isn't Boxcar Bertha either. Now, to be able to judge any movie, not only this one, you have to try and understand what the director was going for, what the movie is trying to achieve and how well this is managed.…

    Fourteen years ago public defender Sam Bowden his evidence from his client Max Cady, a rapist, that could have acquitted him. Now, a just-released Cady, smarter, stronger and more psychotic, is ready to take revenge against the attorney and his family. This movie is not the best Martin scorses movie but it so is not his worst, the movie had a really good cast and Robert De Niro was one scary creep.

    Marty is a hard-core fan of the movies. It's, so, inevitable that a few movie references (Especially Vertigo and Blow-Out), their style or some cameos will paint and mask a simple story with a spectacular experimental energy. It's so cinematic thanks to the 50s style atmosphere with fast edits, fake but dramatic skies that changes itself in accordance to the tone of the film (from stormy to bloody) and odd angles, also adding more to the enigma and unpredictability to…

    Mi puntuación va totalmente inclinada hacia las magistrales actuaciones de ésta película, sobretodo para Robert De Niro que ya no me canso ni creo cansarme de ver sus trabajos bajo la dirección del gran Martin Scorsese, que realmente no lo sentí tanto en esta película como en otras, creo que ésta la hubiese podido dirigir otra persona y ni lo sentimos, a diferencia de lo que hubiera ocurrido con Goodfellas o Taxi Driver.

    No sentí la historia tan interesante en…

    A very solid film from all aspects. Deniro shows another reason why he is the greatest actor of our time. This is a very engaging and effective thriller!

    Swing and a miss, Marty.

    Scorsese's take on J. Lee Thompson's adaptation of The Executioners lacks all of the subtle creepiness of it's predecessor, instead opting for a strange blend of psuedo-ultraviolence and implied gore.

    There are the tacked on, extraneous scenes scattered throughout that, for the most part, neither service the overall plot or actually entertain. There's the awkward use of negative images and blundering camerawork. It's almost as though Martin…
