Description

RAGING BULL is director Martin Scorsese's lacerating film biography of middleweight boxing champion Jake La Motta, who was known during his brief reign as 'The Bronx Bull.' La Motta (played with extraordinary brilliance by Robert De Niro) had early lessons in life: to steal and to fight. His aggression in the ring was a means of combating deep-seated anxieties and emotional fears. This determination and rage turned him from a young hoodlum into a champion. But his drive for the title, his brutality outside of the ring and his almost-psychotic sexual jealousy will destroy his marriage to Vickie (Cathy Moriarty) and his deepest friendships. After Vickie leaves him, a final violent confrontation with his patient, supportive brother and manager, Joey (Joe Pesci) -and the loss of his title, La Motta begins a downward slide.

    Not my favorite Scorsese film (esp. as I'm not remotely a boxing fan) but a must see for anyone interested in the cinema. De Niro is incredible. Kudos all around. I've seen it twice and shall watch it again someday.

    I've been waiting for this movie for quite some time. Some people may think it's slow, some people may think it's brutal, but at the end of the day, it's beautiful. A tale of gut-wrenching jealousy and insecurity. In my own humble opinion, Scorsese's best, and perhaps the best ever.
  • GREAT MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!

    And finally, after years of waiting, iTunes adds Raging Bull to their store. I haven’t even watched it yet, but, Scorsese, De Niro, Frank Vincent, AND Pesci? It’s impossible that it is anything less than 5 stars.

    At last, at last, at last! To have this masterpiece not available for digital download all these years: It defeats its own purpose. But now Jake, Joey, Tommy, Salvy and the whole crew will be at our disposal whenever we desire.
  • Master-piece !!!
