why at the expense? Schindler's list came out pretty good. have you seen it lately?
and cape fear indeed rocked. it is easily one of the best most entertaining "thrillers" around.
right it came out fucking amazing, no argument here.
i meant at the expensive of making a masterpiece, he made a balls solid thriller. look I'm not saying he'd even do a better job then Spielberg. i am saying both films are amazing. yet, i would think that making Schindler's list would have been more of dream project. it has been widely discussed in various books/interviews that Scorsese and Spielberg switched projects because A. it was a fatter paycheque (something Marty wasn't used to, and a carrot held by Stephen) and B. Spielberg used the him being Jewish card on Marty, a film about "his people".
at the end of the day i would feel proud as film maker with either of these amazing films, but Schindler will be remembered and written about in film history books. also, it's a movie you can write home about, mom would be proud... less so proud about a crazed killer movie.
