5.0 out of 5 stars "...God has passed through you.", 30 Jan 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Bringing Out the Dead [DVD] [2000] (DVD)
The shadow of those more familiar modern classics (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull) will always hang over this film, but I found the critical cold shoulder it received quite impossible to understand.

Bringing out the dead resonates with the speed and collapse of an amphetamine. The blue tinge, the grey faces and Cage's deadpan stupor all seem to suggest some quiet apocalypse, and that is what makes it so special. The silence, and the wonder. Through his mini-epiphanies we are given a fast-track into the mind of Cage's world-weary medic, and we share his pain, but more importantly we share the fleeting hits of glory that he feels.

Cage ponders, on saving a life, the change that it commands in him, for it feels as though 'God has passed through you.' And you too will believe for a moment that He has.
