Product Description

Academy Awardc Nominee Martin Scorsese Directs Academy Awardc Winner Robert De Niro In This Pulse-Pounding Revenge Thriller.

Amazon.ca

Martin Scorsese's 1991 remake of J. Lee Thompson's 1962 thriller dabbles a bit in some fascinating psychological crosscurrents between its characters, but it finally trades in all that rich material for extensive and gratuitous violence. Robert De Niro plays a serial rapist released from prison after 14 years. Angry because his appalled attorney (Nick Nolte) made it easy for him to be convicted, this monster is out to hurt Nolte's character through his wife (Jessica Lange) and daughter (Juliette Lewis). The themes of interlocking guilt and anger between these people suggests a smart film in the making. But the final act, set on a boat with De Niro's vengeful pervert attacking Nolte and the two women, takes a more unfortunate direction. Stick with the original (which starred Robert Mitchum and Gregory Peck, each of whom make a cameo appearance in this film). --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Robert DeNiro gives an outstanding performance as an ex-convict who is released and is on the hunt for the lawyer who convicted him, and in the process, he wreaks havoc wherever he goes. Of interesting note is a rather chilling scene in a bar when DeNiro's character strikes up an acquaintance with a girl who jokes around with him, and as the laughter heats, DeNiro chuckles that he just got out of jail (laughter), and that he did time for rape (more laughter). Of course the girl doesn't take him seriously until she becomes his next victim, and it's on to look for the lawyer (Nolte).
All in all, this has to be one of the most profoundly disturbing movies I've ever seen, and I've been in the criminal justice area for over 20 years. The mere mention of the movie causes me to twinge, and although I don't know what DeNiro had to do to research this role, but he's highly believable in the role.
There are some ... suggestive scenes, and the language is a little crude in spots, but I suggest caution in viewing, and in particular, that the young ones don't get an eyeful of this one. It's brutal in its depiction, and it's cautiously recommended - for the strong of heart.

Very few thrillers stand out like Martin Scorsese's "Cape Fear." It's a terrifying ride that frightens us to the very core. It shakes you violently and paints an intense picture of revenge that is taken to a whole different level. This is a dark and brutal film that doesn't let you off easy for a single second.
Attorney Sam Bowden appears to have the perfect life upon simple examination. He has a loving wife and daughter, a very nice home, and a pretty successful and providing career. Things take a drastic turn when Max Cady is released from prison after serving a term of fourteen years. Cady was once represented by Bowden and is now looking for a little payback, as he feels that his former attorney didn't do everything he possibly could to keep him out of prison. Now, Sam must realize the present danger that is before him, as not only is his life in absolute danger--but also his family and everybody else he loves and cares for. The stakes have never been higher.
This is an absolutely disturbing film that pulls no punches. It's a very uneasy movie to watch, and yet it is so well done that it is hard NOT to watch. Robert De Niro is extremely terrifying as the vengeful "Max Cady" who is out and about, looking to settle the score. This is definitely a signature role for De Niro, as this would be one of his many roles that he will be remembered for most. Nick Nolte also gives a remarkable performance that adds a human quality to his character. The movie is well written and is perfectly executed frame by frame. It plays like a Hitchcock film on ecstasy. Martin Scorsese flawlessly directs this horrifying picture and knows what strings to pull to get a reaction from us. Be warned, this is not a movie for those who have weak stomachs or faint hearts.

I hadn't seen the original 'Cape Fear' but after watching this I've become a lot more interested in seeking it out, just to see the stylistic and indeed the moral differences between 1962 and 1991. I'm sure the original wasn't as violent as this one.
Another tour-de-force for Robert DeNiro, who I believe spent 3 months working out just to build up all that muscle (shades of Raging Bull). Although I think in terms of acting ability Nick Nolte steals the show. As a lawyer caught between the moral relativity of his career and as an everyday man susceptable to the whims of his desire, Nolte portarys all of Sam's uncertainty and inner conflict with an earnest rage.
Paradoxically it is DeNiro who remains for most of the movie relaxed and underwhelmed by most of the events and people he encounters. For instance in the theatre scene with Juliette Lewis. DeNiro performs a subtle piece of seduction, playing on the petty prejudices she has against her parents. He acts as the devil nestling on her shoulder, pretending he can empatise with all her hang-ups and frustrations.
The performances in this straight forward thriller are really what sets 'Cape Fear' apart from other films within this genre. Martin Scorsese is known more for character-driven films rather than plot-driven ones. This particular film was commissioned in part by Universal studios and in part by Steven Spielberg. Scorsese only really did it to get the money for the 'Age Of Innocence'.

Robert De Niro's best performance is his terrifying portrayal of vicious psycho Max Cady, hell-bent on vengeance on his lawyer, Sam Bowden (played by Nick Nolte) who didn't defend him as well as he should of during a rape case. De Niro is clearly playing the part with as much relish as possible. His Southern accent, chilling laugh, Biblical tattoos, and the violent actions he brings to screen make him one of the most memorable villains in cinema. Not only that, but he is a believable one too, not too over-the-top. He's insane near the end, yes, but he is realistic. Nick Nolte gives a fairly good performance to Sam Bowden, Jessica Lange is good as Leigh, and Juliette Lewis gives a remarkable performance as Danielle Bowden, the emotionally-tortured teenage daughter of Sam and Leigh. The way the film uses seduction and betrayal as major themes is a key element. Director Martin Scorsese gives this film a classic horror feeling, paying special homage to the 1962 original by having Robert Mitchum, Gregory Peck, and Martin Balsam (all in the original) play cameo roles in this box-office remake. Not to mention, Scorsese wisely chose the same eerie score from the original film. This is a wonderful film, and it is horrifying. There is some graphic violence that is quite disturbing (particularly the scene in which Cady mutilates a woman in her apartment), but if that doesn't bother you, than you'll love this film. If you enjoy clever, intellectual psychological thrillers with LOTS of suspense, you'll love "Cape Fear".
