On a related note, I rewatched Cape Fear again the other day and I loved it even more than before (I'm also a big fan of the original film of course.)
And I had forgotten how "not realistic" Scorsese's remake was.
It's very stylized, bordering a lot of times on the surreal, almost like in a dream or a nightmare actually.
In a way, it kinda feels closer to another Mitchum Masterpiece: "The Night of the Hunter", than it does to the original "Cape Fear."
Awesome, underrated movie and very different than any of his other films.

Your quote also reminded me of another one:

"Real is good. Interesting is better."
-Stanley Kubrick

"When I saw Texas Chain Saw Massacre, I realized: I don’t want to be a director, I don’t want to be a writer, I don’t want to be a producer, I don’t want to be a photographer, I don’t want to be an editor, I don’t want to be a sound man. I want to be all of them at once. And that film proved that you can do it because that movie is not a normal movie.”

Nicholas Winding Refn

"He'll frighten the life out of you. He did me the first time I saw him, because we did a rehearsal on the first day and we hadn't met or anything.
He had to come up in an elevator to our home, Batman's home.
I'm thinking I'm letting friends in, instead of which he's killed them all and he's coming up in the lift. So on the first rehearsal, I've never seen him.
When the bloody door opened on that lift, he came tearing out. I forgot every line. Terrifying.Ē

-Michael Caine on Heath Ledger

You look at what Christopher Nolan did with Batman, it's like, that's like the meeting of the highest level of artistic skill and a kind of commerciality, sort of appeal to a wide range of people... It's amazing what he did with those films. Kinda unparallelled, actually.

'I donít hang around pool halls. I donít play poker. And I donít go to sporting events. To me, torture would be watching sports on television. If I go to Dodger Stadium, thatís ok, because the game is secondary to the beer and the environment. One thing I donít understand is that average American movie-goers cannot watch a movie for three hours, yet theyíll watch a stupid, boring, horrific football game for four hours. Now, that is boredom at its most colossal.' - Quentin Tarantino

Although I'm a football fan, I have to agree with this.

I'm not a sports fan by any stretch of the imagination, but I think he kind of countered his own point. Or answered his own question, if he asked one in there somewhere. The reason people can sit through a four hour football game and not a three hour movie is the exact same reason reason Tarantino would be comfortable drinking beer at Dodger Stadium; atmosphere. When people watch a game on TV they usually have a few buddies around, share the experience, hoot and holler and drink and talk during the breaks. When you watch a movie with buddies you sit quietly and absorb the film and talk afterwards.

There are exceptions to both scenarios of course, but in general it's the immediate atmosphere that makes all the difference.

Good one, even though ironically war has inspired some really good films.
