Cape Fear Reviews
Stay away if you're squeamish but, if you do, you'll miss an essential work by one of our masters, as well as two of the year's most accomplished performances, those of Mr. De Niro and Ms. Lewis.
It's hard to understand why Martin Scorsese wanted to remake a nasty, formulaic 1962 thriller whose only "classic" credentials are a terrifying performance by Robert Mitchum and a Bernard Herrmann score.
Scorsese's remake (also hommage in some ways) is inferior to the original 1962 version, though the acting is good, and both Robert De Niro and Juliette Lewis garnered Oscar nominations.
Scorsese cria com riqueza de detalhes um neo noir que, com um estilo marcado, se diferencia de boa parte de sua obra, demonstrando simultaneamente sua versatilidade e seu conhecimento sobre a historia do Cinema.
In Scorsese's frightfully wrong remake, De Niro seduces a teen (Juliette Lewis), bites off breasts with geek-like fury and breaks the world's record for longest hitchhike on the underside of a car.
