September 17, 2008
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.

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

January 1, 2001
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 10/10
