Cape Fear

1991

Martin Scorsese
Director

Modern-day remake of what was already a great movie. This time it's Martin Scorsese who takes the reigns in directing long-time friend De Niro in the role of Max Cady, a psychopath convict released from jail and seeking revenge on the counsellor who betrayed him 14 years ago.

Not an altogether convincing supporting cast, but Lewis is a scene stealer very early in her career and her unrehearsed, improvised drama scene with De Niro in the school is one of the best in the movie. Recommended, but not as tight as the 1961 original in my opinion.
