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.

    This movie is a CLASSIC. The opening credits of Jake in the ring with the classical music is unbelievable. Black and white theme is very cool. Great performances from De Niro, Pesci etc. This movie, however, is very hard and uncomfortable to watch at times, with the domestic violence and loud screaming/swearing. Great plot, well directed, superbly acted

    Raging Bull is an enduring classic that will never age badly. Being one of Scorsese's finest works and one of De Niro's best performances, the sheer brilliance of this motion picture is one of the hardest to duplicate. To anyone that has not seen it, watch it. You owe it to yourself.
