Synopsis:
Raging Bull is arguably the finest work from the Scorsese and De Niro partnership. De Niro gives and amazing portrayal of a man whose animal side lurks just beneath the surface, ever ready to erupt. Vivid and unremitting in its uncompromising brutality and honesty, the fight sequences are famed for their realism. Violent throughout, this film is a testament to Scorsese's and De Niro's skills, creating a thoroughly absorbing film about such an unlikable character. Renowned for throwing himself into the roles of his character, De Niro went on a diet to gain fifty pounds during production for the role of the faded star.

Intense and dramatic but not easy viewing. - Raging Bull review by JD

If you think it was impressive that Renée Zellweger put on several pounds to play Bridget Jones you will be blown away by de Niro's commitment to this film. His performance is unquestionably outstanding and this film deserves to have the cult status I believe it to have. The boxer however was really not nice and this account of his life is quite difficult to engage with. There is no likeable character and no comfortable interlude between bouts of aggression and extreme jealousy. This film should be on a list of films to watch but not for idle pleasure.

A Masterpiece - Raging Bull review by PT

Spoiler Alert
25/01/2016

De Niro's finest performance I feel. La Motta ( De Niro) is a brilliant fighter but his people skills are appalling. He loves Vicky (an exceptional feature film debut by Cathy Moriarty) his wife with all his heart in his own way, but that way is terrible for her, and anyone who even looks in her direction. His total paranoia of her imagined infidelity and fancying other men culminates with brutal consequences for his brother ( Joe Pesci also outstanding).

Great boxing sequences, especially the fight with Sugar Ray, when La Motta takes a barbaric hammering, blood drenching the front row spectators in the carnage. What, and the way he says it to Sugar Ray Robinson after this savagery sums the man up. La Motta is hewn from granite, as is his personality. His caring, loving side is there, but the paranoia and total mistrust of his personality take precedence. What a film.
