Bringing Out the Dead Reviews

Film4

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.

However muddled the story gets, Scorsese guarantees Bringing Out the Dead remains a pulsating trip.

Everyone looks dead and they speak as if they live in a nightmarish dreamworld. Well, they do.

It's still a marginal cut below his greatest triumphs. But not by too much, I think.

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

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.
