An underrated movie

In my opinion, it is easily the most underrated movie directed by Martin Scorsese. When it was released, it was barely noticed and didn't get much love and even nowadays it is a considered one of Scorsese's minor efforts. Personally, I do think it is actually a very good flick and it features of those great weird performances by Nicolas Cage. You know the Cage rule, right? For every 10 movies, he ... read more

48 hours in the life of a burnt-out paramedic. Once called Father Frank for his efforts to rescue lives, Frank sees the ghosts of those he failed to save around every turn. He has tried everything he can to get fired, calling in sick, delaying taking calls, yet cannot quit the job on his own.

"First viewing - Aug. 28th I liked this movie, but I'm not entirely sure what the point was. Cage turns in one of his rare great performances, and the rest of the cast is solid. The film is definitely interesting, but then it ended and I was left feeling like they forgot something. It was good, but like most of Scorsese's films it wasn't anything that especially impressed me. Not sure what it is about his films but most for me are worth watching once and that's it. Matter of taste I guess. The s"

"08.01. PC, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Martin Scorsese This was a must-see for me as it is a pretty rare instance of Nicolas Cage working with a well-regarded director. The film was actually really strange. Maybe it was just me but I felt like it really had a difficulty establishing its tone. It has its share of cheesyish melodrama (the whole "Rose" side to it), plenty of Scorsese brand of black comedy and some Leaving Las Vegas or Taxi Driver style character study - the latest of which I thought "

Katsottua 2014 (645 movies items)

"23.3. Cage-projekti: 39/66 Tänä vuonna ja tähän asti näkemistäni Cage-elokuvista ehdottomasti kiinnostavin ja kaikin puolin onnistunut elokuva, joka todistaa että Cagesta on muuhunkin kuin perseilyyn. Cagen roolisuoritus on kaikessa fyysisyydessään vähintäänkin yhtä vaikuttava kuin Leaving Las Vegasissa ja elokuvan maaninen inhorealismi saa voimaan pahoin. "

My year of watches 2014 (29 movies items)

"by Martin Scorsese Enpä osannut odottaa näin outoa leffaa. Alkoi vastenmielisellä kliseistä jurnutusta latelevalla kertojanäänellä, hämmästytti synkkiä ajatuksia säestävillä riemuralleillaan ja huipentui kohtauksiin, joissa Nic sekoilee modernissa oopiumluolassa ja juo ambulanssikaverin kanssa viinaa keikalla ympäri kaupunkia hurjastellen. Kysehän on siis ambulanssikuskin burn-outista ja syyllisyyden voittamisesta. Yhteiskuntakritiikkiäkin löytyy. Puoli tähteä lempparinäyt"

"3.1 PC This turned out to be a huge surprise for me. Scorsese's late 90's box office flop is actually one of the director's most interesting and fascinating movies. Bringing Out the Dead inspects two days of an ambulance paramedic's life in New York. Nicolas Cage is the protagonist and narrator, which actually was the main reason for me to watch this film. The movie starts out slow. Frank Pierce (Cage) is depressed and tries to get fired, but there's no chance for him to quit his job. He hasn'"

"I'm not sure how an the highest echelon crew can make such a messy and not-great film. Scorsese has all his best on this project and it's somehow a disappointment. I think the acting was their biggest issue. I'm not sure why they chose who they did."
