Raging Bull

Director: Martin Scorsese.
Starring: Robert De Niro, Cathy Moriarty, Joe Pesci. USA 1980. 129 mins.

Scorsese's extraordinary, compelling examination of the career of prizefighter Jake La Motta - and the destructive urges of the masculine psyche - progressing from his strutting days as unbeaten champion boxer in the 1940s to his pathetic degeneration into a fat slob in the late '50s. Centred around a physically and emotionally harrowing performance by De Niro, RAGING BULL is a film of near operatic intensity, a sympathetic, tragic portrait of a deeply unappealing man. To date, the summit of Scorsese's and De Niro's respective careers.
