Continuity mistake: When Nick Nolte confronts his daughter in her bedroom about meeting with Robert De Niro, as the camera angle switches from Nolte's face to his daughter's face, his hand over her mouth changes positions.
Cape Fear is a gritty early Martin Scorsese film where a lawyer who withheld evidence that could have helped his guilty client's case was purposefully withheld, leading to his conviction, long incarceration and hunger for cruel revenge against that lawyer and his family. Robert DeNiro presents a menacing, dangerous character who's also intelligent enough to have used his time in prison to fully immerse himself in the law so that he can better circumvent it later, while Nick Nolte, Jessica Lange and Juliette Lewis star as the targeted lawyer and his wife and child who spend the film badgered by the rapist/murderer! It's a tense thriller that shouldn't be missed.
