The Making of 'Cape Fear' (2001)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Very entertaining documentary taking a look at the making of Martin Scorsese's CAPE FEAR. We get interviews with (some archival) Scorsese, Robert DeNiro, Jessica Lange, Juliette Lewis, Nick Nolte, Gregory Peck, Thelma Schoonmaker, Elmer Bernstein and screenwriter Wesley Strick. We start off hearing from DeNiro that originally he and Steven Spielberg had been talking about doing the picture but when he backed out the screenplay kicked around until they could convince Scorsese to take it. Scorsese then talks about his love for the original film and then we hear what new items he wanted to bring to this remake. From here we learn about the casting, the various locations used and how the filmmakers wanted to get some of the original cast members included. Fans of CAPE FEAR will certainly enjoy this 80-minute documentary that's pretty definitive in regards to telling fans just about everything you'd want to know. Just about everything from the casting to the cinematography to the stunts are covered and you really do get a great idea of various changes that were made throughout the production. The most interesting thing is hearing how the cast and Scorsese were changing the lines throughout the production and having the writing add things that weren't in the original screenplay. This includes the first meeting between DeNiro and Lange and we also hear about the filming of the now classic scene between DeNiro and Lewis. Fans of the film should be entertained by this documentary and it's certainly worth watching after viewing the movie.
