Cape Fear

Robert De Niro is horrifying in his role as an ex-con looking for revenge on the lawyer that failed to keep him out of prison. I was surprised however to find out that Martin Scorsese directed the film. The black and white negative spots littered throughout just don't work for me.

A good movie

It does however become glaringly obvious that i... read more

" Date: 10/25/2018 Viewed: Blu-Ray Re-watch Note: I still think this movie holds up very well and I consider it to be better than the original movie in my opinion. It's not Scorsese's best movie, but still a great movie. Robert De Niro as Max Cady is fantastic and his role is still pretty creepy.

I also love how Scorcese is able to make the movie feel scary and suspenseful by using almost only close up shots giving that f"
