I watched “Cape Fear” for the first time in maybe a dozen years last night. Robert De Niro is simply amazing in it as the psychopath “Max Cady”. Nick Nolte, Jessica Lange and a young Juliette Lewis were all great, but De Niro was flawless. One would have a valid argument if they felt he deserved the Oscar over Anthony Hopkins who was also flawless in “Silence of the Lambs”. 

I still need to sit down and watch the original from 1962.
