Raging Bull 1980

From Amazon: Martin Scorsese's brutal black-and-white biography of self-destructive boxer Jake LaMotta was chosen as the best film of the 1980s in a major critics' poll at the end of the decade, and it's a knockout piece of filmmaking. Robert De Niro plays LaMotta (famously putting on 50 pounds for the later scenes), a man tormented by demons he doesn't understand and prone to uncontrollably violent temper tantrums and fits of irrational jealousy. He marries a striking young blond (Cathy Moriarty), his sexual ideal, and then terrorizes her with never-ending accusations of infidelity. Jake is as frightening as he is pathetic, unable to control or...

Raging Bull Movie Review by Clayton (1/4/2012)

In this knock-out, 2-fisted Fight Film, broken noses, spurting blood, and cauliflower ears are initially all that is required to set the mood.

Raging Bull is an extraordinaryly compelling portrait of real-life prizefighter, Jake LaMotta, whose only leading opponent outside of the ring always seemed to be himself.

Raging Bull Movie Review by Steven (7/31/2007)

I first saw "Raging Bull" a few years ago at a friend's house. And so began my admiration for Martin Scorcese.

Raging Bull Movie Review by Movie Addict (4/14/2007)

Long, slow, excruciating, heartbreaking self-destruction. With boxing.

I don't know what took me so long to see this movie, but I jumped at the chance last night. I know it was nominated for a slew of awards, but that is not why I tuned in.

It was Joe Pesci's fourth film and he really shows the tough guy that he was to...

Raging Bull Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie (3/12/2007)

A classic for its bold style, editing and performances. A pull no punches (no pun intended) look at the world of boxing and the story of Jake LaMotta.

I gotta admit I am a big fan of boxing movies, there is something about the sport that is wildly cinematic and it works so well.

This is the ultimate boxing movie,...

Raging Bull Movie Review by Tony (3/31/2006)

"Raging Bull" is about boxer Jake LaMotta in a hurricane of a performance by Robert DeNiro that is the definition of method acting. DeNiro even gained 60 pounds to play the boxer and also lost the weight again to show him in his earlier years. DeNiro completely becomes Jake LaMotta, and does a physical and mental...
