He’s burned out, exhausted, seeing ghosts, especially a young woman he failed to save six months’ before, and no longer able to save people: he brings in the dead. We follow him for three nights, each with a different partner: Larry, who thinks about dinner, Marcus, who looks to Jesus, and Tom, who wallops people when work is slow. Frank befriends the daughter of a heart victim he brings in; she’s Mary, an ex-junkie, angry at her father but now hoping he’ll live. Frank tries to get fired, tries to quit, and keeps coming back, to work and to Mary, in need of his own rebirth.
Plot: Once called Father Frank for his efforts to rescue lives, Frank sees the ghosts of those he failed to save around every turn. He has tried everything he can to get fired, calling in sick, delaying taking calls where he might have to face one more victim he couldn’t help, yet cannot quit the job on his own.

A brilliant film
Bringing out the Dead, unfortunately, has fewer fans than it deserves. Why? Because this isn’t simply a “New York” movie, or a movie about a paramedic, or about euthenasia, despite the ostensible setting and plot points.
Instead, Scorsese has created a cinematic myth about how haunted modern existence can be, and what it takes to be “saved” and find grace in a seemingly godless world. His vision of New York is all literate existential comedy, not a window into the rotten Big Apple. Mere satiric commentary on the tragedy of life in New York is for journeyman directors; Scorsese is doing something else entirely here.
In other words, this is that really rare beast–a literate film that is, first and foremost, still a great movie. In the plot and its implications, there’s more here of Flannery O Conner or Virginia Woolf than there is here of, say, Tom Wolf. More pariticularly, Bringing out the Dead does with masterful filmmaking what Joyce’s The Dead did in prose. This film is a truly eye-opening investigation into how the living exist in the shadow of the dead and dying.
The film accomplishes this incredibly difficult task on many levels–the cinematography alone should give you a clue that this is definitely not Taxi Driver or Goodfellas–there’s something more sublime here (the beauty that American Beauty explains wonderfully is shown everywhere in this film, but Bringing out the Dead is less mundane, simple and “character” oriented). Every shot is right, and the numerous computer effects here–on display almost for their own sake in The Matrix–are here poetically put together by a master director.
So, just for it’s approach to a subject that few movies or directors would even attempt, this film will be a classic. Oddly enough, one of the few movies it can be compared with is Hitchcock’s Vertigo, which confronts the same issues in a different way. Scotty’s (Jimmy Stewart) desire to “raise” the dead is as strong as Frank’s, and audiences didn’t much like Vertigo when it was released either.
The acting, the music, the incredible photography–they’re all great, if you realize you are watching a literate, funny, well-plotted (as opposed to simply plotted) meditation on the ghosts that increasingly inhabit our technocratic dwellings.
Too good for a grade: see it on the biggest, best screen you can while you can. BTW–it’s better the second time.
Brilliant film with paramedics and urban jungle, a crazy ride
I just love it when Nicholas Cage takes on these types of roles, where he plays a slightly crazy to full crazy characters. Ving Rhames also puts on a pretty entertaining performance and I really enjoyed these characters dialogues. In fact I liked almost every exchange of dialogue in this movie. Okay the plot is about Frank Pierce(Nicholas Cage) who is a paramedic that tries to help people in the street of Manhattan. He gets some pleasure out of his job, but for the most part it’s like a living hell for him. Now I haven’t really experienced the lifestyle in the early 90’s, but it seems pretty crazy and obnoxious how the movie portrays it. Especially inside the hospitals, I never seen a hospital that crazy and hectic. The way New York is shown in the early 90’s is pretty gritty with a lot of people trying to stay afloat. Scorsese has made some brilliant films in the past and I really enjoyed this movie as well. Nicholas Cage was the perfect actor for this role and the way he cruises the streets in a ambulance while making narrative about the city life was entertaining although somewhat random at times. This is a film making done very well and powerful as well. Engaging movie with some great and entertaining performances. I especially liked the dark serious humor in this. Highly recommend anyone to see it.
