Cape Fear

Director: Martin Scorsese.
Starring: Robert De Niro, Nick Nolte, Jessica Lange, Juliette Lewis. USA 1991. 128 mins.


Scorsese's retelling of the 1962 chiller reworks the key characters and their relationships, giving De Niro's psychotic ex-con Max Cady a motivation to pursue lawyer Sam Bowden (Nolte). His character, in turn, is morally flawed and more ambivalent than in the original. All of which only serve to increase the scare-factor as Cady starts wreaking revenge on Bowden for his perceived failures when defending him on a rape charge many years before.
