Film Series: Cape Fear

1991. USA. Dir: Martin Scorsese. With Robert De Niro, Nick Nolte. 127 min. 

Decades before The Wolf of Wall Street, Marty went nuts with a predator of a different stripe: a psychopathic ex-con out to systematically destroy the defender who failed him. A tattooed, muscular De Niro oozes menacing sleaze, his performance perfectly tuned to an over-the-top style that’s part horror flick, part social satire, and part Hitchcock homage.
