The Unloved, Part Eleven: "Bringing Out The Dead"

"If saving a life is the equivalent of a fix for paramedics, [director Martin] Scorsese, writer Paul Schrader and star Nicolas Cage wanted to show a man slowly and painfully dying from the longest and ugliest overdose." Such is the hook for Scout Tafoya's 11th installment of his video series championing films he believed were unfairly ignored or scorned. Scorsese's "Bringing Out The Dead" didn't have many fans upon its debit in October of 1999, but in his four-star review, Roger Ebert hailed it as an antidote to "the immature intoxication with violence" portrayed in "Fight Club."
