Critic Reviews of "Bringing Out the Dead"
Chicago ReaderSeptember 17, 2008
Its hard-to-pin-down tone is frighteningly original -- simultaneously world-weary and adolescent with an aura of perpetual anxiety, as if the characters and filmmakers were in pursuit of a catharsis everyone knows will never come.
Time OutJune 24, 2006
Of course, it's immaculately crafted and exhilaratingly paced, but in the end it's never as emotionally involving as it could and should be.
New York Magazine/VultureAugust 07, 2004
Scorsese doesn't trust the power of simplicity to rock us.
Globe and MailMarch 19, 2002
The auteur has definitely left his distinctive mark, but too seldom and too narrowly.
New York TimesJanuary 01, 2000
An intense, volatile film full of sorrow and wild, mordant humor.
ReelViewsJanuary 01, 2000
Despite the lack of energy and the lethargic pace, there's something darkly compelling about Bringing Out the Dead.
Film4September 17, 2008
A frankly disturbing experience since Cage is at his most manic, the images are brutal, the documentary-style background intense and the (inevitable) theme of redemption a long time emerging.
eFilmCritic.comAugust 11, 2007
Scorsese is married to a script that drags him down, keeps him from taking wing as a pure artist.
Big Picture Big SoundJuly 14, 2007
Martin Scorsese is a wonderful filmmaker. And he loves New York. He is at his best, though, when he has an interesting story to tell.
Empire MagazineDecember 30, 2006
An exciting, invigorating return to old preoccupations. Welcome home, Marty.
Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)December 23, 2005
However muddled the story gets, Scorsese guarantees Bringing Out the Dead remains a pulsating trip.
