    My biggest take away from this is that I really need to see the original now. I'm not sure what Scorsese was trying to achieve with his remake. Parts work - mostly the middle - but the cutting to the negative of shots was more distracting than anything else, and while De Niro was creepy enough to make up for his scenery chewing, he goes so over the top by the film's end it becomes difficult to take the horror seriously.

    Cape Fear (1991)

    7/10

    Weirdly discomforting but not in a way that would make me admire Scorsese for what he's doing, though he absolutely directs the shit out of this movie. Seeing this compared to the 60's film, I must say that the earlier film works better in terms of how much constraint it shows while at the same time it still manages to be edgy and provocative with the events that it portrays, as well as how intelligently it…

    It’s not the best version of Cape Fear, but then again, neither is the 1962 one. That honour goes to the Simpsons episode ‘Cape Feare’. Not even joking a little bit, that episode is a bonafide masterpiece.

    But yeah, this is still a damn good film and one of the best remakes I’ve ever seen. De Niro’s highly unsettling performance as Max Cady genuinely rivals Robert Mitchum’s in the original, and that is certainly no mean feat. The scene with…

    Probably Robert DeNiro at his most psychotic.

    A rare decent remake, which I think owes more to Hitchcock than the original movie. Perhaps this is the kind of thing that Hitch would've made if he'd still be around in '91. I certainly wish Scorsese had made more like this in his career.

    This time round I was fascinated by Nick Nolte, considering what the intervening years have done to him. He's surprisingly fresh faced here and delivers a solid performance. This is perhaps often overlooked, as he's…

    For ei klipping, for en DeNiro. Veldig solid, sjølv om voice-overen på slutten er håplaus.

    Whenever someone tells me they hate movie remakes, I always bring up this overlooked Scorsese film from 1991.

    Robert De Niro's Max Cady has got to be up there on a list with the most terrifying movie villains. His intelligence and religious fundamentalism (believing his is an instrument of God) are contrasted with his well-built frame and animalistic actions. He has brains, braun, and a memory like a steel trap.( I'm even trembling as I type this.) He can "out-learn…
