Re: General Movie Discussion Part II
Just watched Bringing Out The Dead and it was brilliant. Seriously underrated Scorsese movie, and even though it's not up there with his top tier films, it's still better than pretty much most other American director's work during that time. It's clearly got more than a few hints of Taxi Driver running through it with similar themes, but it's also completely different with it's main characters way of dealing with his issues. Cage (and Ving Rhames for that matter) is fantastic in it, and shows that when he's on top form he's a world class actor. It's really funny and the soundtrack as with most Scorsese movies is great, and he really is a master at using soundtrack and image together to create amazing atmospheres. If you're a Scorsese fan and haven't seen this great overlooked movie, then get the hell on it.
