A frankly disturbing experience since Cage is at his most manic, the images are brutal, the documentary-style background intense and the (inevitable) theme of redemption a long time emerging.
Its hard-to-pin-down tone is frighteningly original -- simultaneously world-weary and adolescent with an aura of perpetual anxiety, as if the characters and filmmakers were in pursuit of a catharsis everyone knows will never come.
Martin Scorsese is a wonderful filmmaker. And he loves New York. He is at his best, though, when he has an interesting story to tell.
| Original Score: 3/4
An exciting, invigorating return to old preoccupations. Welcome home, Marty.
| Original Score: 4/5
However muddled the story gets, Scorsese guarantees Bringing Out the Dead remains a pulsating trip.
| Original Score: 3/4
It's assuredly the work of a master filmmaker.
| Original Score: B+
Everyone looks dead and they speak as if they live in a nightmarish dreamworld. Well, they do.
A very different and, in many respects, very impressive film.
Overlooked Martin Scorsese movie has grim humor, grit and grace.
| Original Score: 5/5
Give it to Martin Scorsese to keep coming back and hitting one out of the park.
| Original Score: 4/4
Um filme sobre solidão, medo e angústia que jamais fornece respostas fáceis para os dolorosos dilemas de seus personagens.
A riveting drama about a New York City paramedic who is experiencing a harrowing spiritual emergency.
Martin Scorsese's new movie is both amazing and darkly hilarious.
A powerful, emotionally-draining slice-of-life.
It's still a marginal cut below his greatest triumphs. But not by too much, I think.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
Vidas al Límite es más que nada un buen ejercicio para Scorsese, ya que si bien no es de su mejores cintas, sí contiene varias secuencias que son dignas de llamar la atención
A harrowing, darkly comic tale.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
The creative energy contrasts with the destructiveness of life. These are the things Scorsese sees when he closes his eyes, and he has the craft to pull you into that world of his.
| Original Score: 10/10
This is the real poop behind the medical emergency scenes. Scorsese and team don't hold back.
| Original Score: 9/5
