What is the movie Raging Bull about?
Released in 1980 to initially mixed reviews (mostly due oto its overtly violent nature), “Raging Bull” is now considered one of Martin Scorsese’s finest works, as well as one of the greatest films ever made. “Raging Bull” is a sports biopic about Jake LaMotta, a former Italian boxer and a middleweight champion whose self destructive behavior and problems with alcohol led to his professional and personal downfall. The story follows LaMotta from his early boxing days to gaining the championship belt, all the way to his subsequent fall from grace, and explores the themes of jealousy, aggression, vbiolence and animal urges. LaMotta is played by Robert De Niro, who won the Academy award for the best actor for this role. De Niro went to great lengths in changing his appearance to be able to lay the role convincingly over the course of 20 years of LaMotta’s life. The film also marks Joe Pesci’s first big screen role. Despite the fact that the film didn’t get the Academy award for the best motion picture, over the years it has established the status of one of the finest movies of the 80’s, if not the finest. It is also widely considered the greatest film in Martin Scorsese’s extensive catalogue, even ahead of works such as “Taxi Driver” or “Goodfellas”

If I had to sum up this film in one word it would be "Breathtaking". Right from the beginning I knew that this was one of those rare movies that immediately go in everyone's top ten lists. This film is spellbinding. The direction was flawless. The Cinematography was sublime, but the thing that stood out to me the most in this film to me was Robert De Niro's performance as Jake La Motta. In my opinion, it is the most flawless, breathtaking performance in cinema history. It truly is the best acting performance ever filmed. Supporting roles such as Joe Pesci as Joey La Motta and Cathy Moriarty as Vickie La Motta are also brilliant. Overall, the film will stand out in movie history and Robert De Niro's performance will be talked about for years to come. It will always be my favorite film and will never fail to take my breath away.

“Raging Bull” is my favorite film. Robert de Niro's performance in this film is truly amazing and the direction from Scorsese and the script from Paul Schrader are flawless. The fight scenes are the most brutal that I have ever seen on film even though theres only like 12 minutes of them and the editing is simply brilliant. It should have earned Scorsese a best director Oscar but at least they had enough sense to award de Niro the best actor Oscar. I will come back to this film forever.

It is simply one of the most powerful movies I have ever got to watch. Honestly, I have watched it at least ten times, and it only gets better and better with each viewing. Martin Scorsese is absolutely the greatest filmmaker of the last quarter century, and this film is his best. The story of how boxer Jake LaMotta watched his career and marriage crumble under the weight of his violent temper and deep-rooted misogyny is told with no punches pulled, as Deniro and Scorsese unflinchingly explore what drove this man over the edge, and what ultimately may have pulled him back. The boxing scenes easily rank with the most brutal and violent moments ever put on film, shot in stark, unadorned black and white and utilizing unlikely sounds including shattering windows and animal cries to great effect. Thelma Schoonmaker's jarring, discordant editing in these scenes also deserves special mention. The scenes of domestic violence are not for the faint of heart, but there is really no other way to tell this story. If there is a more perfect exploration of why as men we act the way we do, then I'd love to see it, because this movie made me re-evaluate my life.
