Cape Fear at FACT

Tom Grieve, Cinema Editor

Cape Fear at FACT, City Centre 26 March 2017 Tickets from £8.00 — Book now

With a Southern drawl and cut physique, Robert De Niro is utterly believable – not to mention creepy as hell – as a single-minded rapist bent on destroying the defence lawyer who stepped back and allowed him to go to jail. Scorsese’s frenetic camerawork and editing, set alongside his sheer enthusiasm for the sleazy material, makes for a hugely entertaining movie. Classic film buff that he is, the director also makes room for actors Gregory Peck, Robert Mitchum, and Martin Balsam, all of whom had roles in the 1962 version of the film. Listen out for the score where Elmer Bernstein reworks Bernard Herrman’s original composition to great effect.
