When Jake LaMotta steps into a boxing ring and obliterates his opponent, he's a prizefighter. But when he treats his family and friends the same way, he's a ticking time bomb, ready to go off at any moment. Though LaMotta wants his family's love, something...
One of the finest pieces of cinema i've ever had the pleasure of watching. The editing, directing, acting, and cinematography are all, - in my opinion - perfect.
This isn't a dialogue, story, or plot-driven movie, but the screenplay does it's job.
For me, this has that indescribable cinematic magic, the kind that only true classic films possess, the kind that can't be emulated. I've seen quite a few great boxing films, but for me, none compare to Raging Bull (so far anyway).
You can't help but respect this quality of film making.
If you're watching this thinking you're about to see a sports movie about boxing then, you couldn't be more wrong. Stylistically speaking, this film is beautiful to watch regarding DeNiro's acting, the editing, the cinematography and of course Scorsese's skills.
Do not watch this if you focus more on the plot, dialogue and story because this won't be your cup of tea; that's certain.
Good acting, but the film seems really flat to me .. really I didin't get it.
