Storyline: 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 always seems to come between them. Perhaps it's his violent bouts of paranoia and jealousy. This kind of rage helped make him a champ, but in real life, he winds up in the ring alone.

Atypical Sports Story
The usual trajectory in a sports movie involves some underprivileged character discovering he has a talent, being put through a rigorous training by a mentor, riding that talent to national prominence, being undone by personal demons, and finally rediscovering himself. "Rocky" didn't fit the formula and neither does "Raging Bull." "Rocky," I suspect, broke the mold not so much in the course of a search for originality but in order to leave the way open for a sequel. Or, as it turns out, about five or six sequels. But "Raging Bull" dispenses entirely with the formula and follows Jake LaMotta from early in his career to his ultimate degradation as an unfunny host at a seedy bar in New York. And that's it, except for the possibility of a reconciliation between him and his estranged brother, left unresolved.

Scorcese's direction is simply fine. It's identifiably his own, of course, with inserts of home movies, fist fights over girls, an edgy semi-improvisational quality in the delivery of dialog, slow motion punches to the mouth, a musical score that leans heavily on Italian opera and contemporary pop songs. The plot, for whatever reason, doesn't integrate too well its chief themes -- LaMotta's obsession with his wife's fidelity and his career in the ring. You could almost eliminate one of the plot strings and have enough left over for an independent feature. But that's a minor carp in the overall context because the overwhelming presence of Robert DeNiro as Jake LaMotta pretty much manages to pull them together so the seams are not noticeable.

So the movie depends on DeNiro's performance -- and does he deliver! In real life DeNiro is a sensitive, thoughtful, and private guy, but he does a superb job of dumbing his character down and making him sympathetic and ugly at the same time. Let's say that his LaMotta doesn't show a great deal of insight, whether running around in a paranoid frenzy or pounding an enemy into pulp in the ring. And he has one scene that equals anything he's put on the screen before. A down-and-outer, arrested for serving minors in his cheap night club, and thrown in jail because he is unable to raise a few thousand dollars for bail, he repeatedly smashes his fists against the wall and pounds his forehead on the cement, all the while ululating like a wounded animal. What a performance.

He's well supported by Joe Pesci as the brother who is no more insightful but at least has a hold on common sense. Cathy Moriarty is adequate as LaMotta's abused wife.

I'm driven to add something completely irrelevant to an assessment of the film. When it first came out, I was part of a seminar in the Psychiatry Department at the University of Connecticut and we were dealing with delirium, derived from Latin "de liro" -- "I rave." I desperately wanted to somehow sneak into the discussions a play on words involving the title of the film -- "Raving Bull" staring Robert DeLiro. I never found a way of bringing it up without appearing nuts. Now I've got it out of my system, thanks to IMDb.com, after a quarter of a century. Pardon me. (Wiping away tears of relief and gratitude.) I'd like to thank you all for reading this. I owe everything I have to my coach (thanks, Butch) and my Mom and Dad. (Sob.) Much of the credit goes to my cat, Josefina, and to my Mousterian ancestors. (Breaking into a lachrymose cascade.)

This is a violent and sometimes bloody movie. Scorcese spares us nothing in the way of physical or emotional brutality. But it really shouldn't be missed. A good job on the part of everyone concerned.
Jake La Motta's toughest fights were with his demons outside of the ring.
Raging Bull is about middle weight boxer Jake LaMotta, played by Robert De Niro, and his life inside and outside of the boxing ring. As Jake rises through the ranks in the early 1940s, we see that his confidence in the ring is quite the reverse outside. He struggles with insecurity and jealousy which fills him with rage and guilt, and trusts no one but himself. This serves as the central theme throughout the film. Similar to what Russell Crowes' character John Nash experiences in A Beautiful Mind; the uncontrollable jealousy and insecurity are diseases almost as powerful as schizophrenia.

For a while he is able to control his jealous rage by taking out his aggressions on his opponents, even prolonging one fight so he could do more damage to the face of a boxer that his wife Vickie, played by Cathy Moriarty, mentioned was good looking. To a lesser extent, Jake also uses the ring to pay penance, sometimes allowing an opponent to punish him in an attempt to relieve his guilt. The use of slow-motion, silence, and increasing sound and speed give us a firsthand look at what Jake is experiencing during these fight scenes; the rage and lack of control, and the feeling of defeat and despair.

Desperately wanting a title, Jake is convinced by his brother Joey, played by Joe Pesci, that the only way to get the title fight is to through a fight so the mob can make money from him; then they will set up the title fight. After agreeing and throwing the fight, Jake, already distraught by his decision, is suspended by the boxing commission. Thus begins his steady downward spiral. He begins gaining weight and does nothing to keep himself in shape. No longer able to release his pent up anger in the ring, he begins beating his wife and accusing her of sleeping with multiple people, including his own brother. When she can no longer take his aggressive behavior, she screams back that she has been with everyone he has mentioned and more. He loses complete control and attacks her and his brother.

As Jake's relationship with his brother comes to an end, he retires from boxing to spend more time with his family. This has not done much to mend relations with his wife, we see that it appears to be nothing more than wishful thinking as he orders his family around so the press can take pictures of them, posing as the 'happy family'. Growing bored in retirement, Jake opens a nightclub where he spends more and more time, pursuing his next greatest love, entertaining. One morning, after Jake has spent the night at the club, he comes out to find his wife waiting for him in the parking lot. She informs him that she is leaving him and has already gotten a lawyer and everything is already in motion.

Jake's descent continues when he arrested for serving underage girls in his club, and for 'introducing them to other men'. While out on bail, Jake learns that if he can come up with $10,000 to bribe the judge and prosecutor, he will not have to serve time in jail. The only chance he has of raising that much money is to sell his championship belt. Unable to part with the belt, he pries the jewels out of it and attempts to sell them, but it is not enough. While in jail he has a breakdown, questioning why this has happened to him, and eventually coming to terms with it. In his scene there is a wonderful use of partial lighting showing the conflict and contrast Jake struggles with.

After being released from jail, Jake resumes his stand-up/philosopher act, and moves on with his life. While leaving a performance one night, he sees his brother Joey and awkwardly attempts to reconcile, but the feelings do not appear to be returned. He asks his brother several times to forgive and forget, but never apologizes; still to insecure to admit he has a problem and that he was wrong.
One of the Greatest films, and a true story!
Raging Bull is the definitive art film. It is also hauntingly poetic. It really isn't a movie about boxing as much as about a man with psychological and sexual complexities that he takes out on in the ring. It is a case study on the male masculinity. The only other picture that comes close to this one in terms of male masculinity is maybe Othello. But even that is pushing it! This is one of the few pictures that ever made me cry because many of those emotions of fear, anger, frustration, and rage I feel all the time and can relate to the material. I agree it is the best film of the 1980's and is included in my top 10 favorite films of all time. Kudos to De Niro and Pesci who work together as a great team. This movie is way better than Rocky because it is deeper and more complex. A Great job well done!
Brutal and Honest
Since John Wayne and John Ford stopped making films, the greatest director/actor combination of the last 35 years is in my mind Martin Scorsese and Robert DeNiro.

In Raging Bull these two guys are within their element. An added dimension to Scorsese's direction and DeNiro's portrayal is that these are the people they know and grew up with. Raging Bull invokes a world of the past that isn't always pleasant, but is brutal and honest.

Jake LaMotta as middleweight champion of the world 1949-1951 may have had the hardest chin in boxing. He was a good puncher, but he had a marvelous ability to not only take a punch, but roll with it so it did less damage than thought. He fooled many an opponent like that and set them up for the kill.

Large parts of the boxing establishment was controlled by organized crime back in his days, the fathers of the people you'd later see DeNiro play in Goodfellas. You had to play ball with them or you went nowhere in the fight game. Jake compromised himself by agreeing to throw a fight to someone named Billy Fox in order to get a title shot at the middleweight crown. It seared his very soul in doing that.

One thing that wasn't covered in Raging Bull was the drama behind the title fight itself with Marcel Cerdan the man who LaMotta took the crown from. Cerdan was a national French hero, resistance fighter, lover of Edith Piaf and possessor of a murderous punch who had never been knocked out and only had sustained three losses in his career, two by disqualification. He was quite a brawler himself.

Cerdan broke his elbow in the first round and for 10 rounds literally held LaMotta off with one hand. When he failed to answer the bell for the 11th round, LaMotta got the title on a TKO. He was immediately promised a rematch and was on his way to the USA for that rematch when he was killed in a plane crash in the Azores. His death set off a national period of mourning in France.

LaMotta later admitted throwing the Fox fight to Congressional investigators and that with the win over the injured Cerdan cast a pall on his career and reputation. Sad because it was something he couldn't help. Jake the Bronx Bull certainly did have reason to rage.

DeNiro is something special. Watching this film you really think you are peeking into a heavenly newsreel highlights and lowlights of the life and career of Jake LaMotta. This film should be seen back to back with Somebody Up There Likes Me, the Rocky Graziano story that Paul Newman brought to the screen. Covers roughly the same era with the same quality.

Joe Pesci as DeNiro's manager/brother and Frank Vincent as the neighborhood wise guy would work together again and well with DeNiro and Scorsese. Cathy Moriarty gets her first notice as Jake's second wife Vicky who became a celebrity in her own right after Jake's boxing career was over.

Raging Bull is one of the finest boxing films ever done by a master director assembling a perfect cast to tell the tale of a bygone era.
Scorcese robbed
Well, I don't think I've ever been more disappointed in my entire life, but there it is.

I realize that this film lost to "Ordinary People," a film I love. I am not an idiot - I know that Martin Scorcese is a great, very gifted artist who puts powerful images on the screen. I agree that he has been cheated out of the Academy Award many times, which makes one realize they don't count for much.

For DeNiro, this stands as one of the greatest performances of all time. DeNiro is one of a handful of American actors who has earned his place at the top - he's there with Brando, Pacino, and Newman. "Raging Bull" helped put him there. As far as the rest of the acting, Cathy Moriarity epitomizes the '40s blond and a Bronx woman, and Joe Pesci is perfect as LaMotta's brother.

Scorcese presents here the turbulent life of Jake Lamotta with all its brutality, sparing us nothing in his fights, his anger against his wives, his brother, no one. His obsessive nature, his jealousy, his - well, hey, his rage - does not make him a likable character. LaMotta himself was disturbed by how he came off on screen, but then had the honesty to admit that he was a bastard.

Scorcese creates the Bronx and the bloody horror of the fight ring in a way no one else ever has. The first shot of the lone boxer in the ring is stunning, as is the real LaMotta's own practicing of a speech in a dressing room. Everything about this film evinces the aura of a special era, especially the color home movies - a brilliant touch.

The only problem I had with the film was that it was boring and unwatchable. I finally got so sick of all the screaming and yelling and watching this unlikeable, obnoxious character that I turned the set off. I thought if he tortured his wife one more time asking her if she slept with his brother, I was going to put my fist through the set.

This is the age-old question - you know something is great art but it doesn't speak to you. You like something that's very well done but a little less artistic better - does this means you are one of the masses for whom mediocrity has become your idea of what's good? I don't know. I like to think I can appreciate a beautifully made film. But I think what I can appreciate more than that are complicated characters I understand on some level - or want to understand, real emotions, real heartache - probably more than magnificent film-making. When there is both, it's magic. For me, "Raging Bull" was not one of those times. "Godfather I," "Godfather II," yes.

I really hate writing these comments.
Classic Among Classics. Martin Scorsese's masterpiece.
"Raging Bull"

I watched this a couple days ago, but as I said, I enjoy letting the greatness sink in when I find a diamond in the rough. Just "No Country for Old Men" is the Coen brothers crown jewel, this is Martin Scorsese's crown jewel. This is Martin Scorsese's masterpiece in my opinion. There is nothing better that he has done. THE SCORE! The right music can really light up a film and bring it to life. Robert De Niro's character of Jake La Motta and his rage intertwined with a beautiful classical symphony is put together with such ease and draws you in, and it makes you wonder. He plays the black and white off so sincerely. The lighting every time they stepped into the ring, everything really popped. The smoke that was caught in the air that appeared to be intentionally grainy. Everything. Robert De Niro giving one of the most well deserved best actor academy award winning performances ever to be witnessed on screen. And Joe Pesci, I apologize once again. I underestimated you and had a skewed vision of what you were like as an actor that was created from "Home Alone"; you too, truly are talented. Their chemistry was great. The way that Cathy Moriarty put her lips together to make them seem so small and cute. It's not even really about boxing, it's more about Jake La Motta and what a terrible person he was and how sad his life became. This is not a movie of redemption. Beautiful. Marvelous. Classic. Genius. Genuine.

Spoilers herein.

I'll be right up front. I admit Scorsese's skill but just don't like his films and certainly don't see any art in them.

That's because I disagree with him on what cinematic storytelling is all about. For him, characters are everything, which is why he needs sledgehammers as actors, and spikes (gangsters, etc) as the roles. Then he arranges for them to explode or simmer or steam, or explode again.

Every element of the eye is subservient to the character. He (always he except for his experiment with poor Alice) pulls the camera around. We as bound audience follow. It is all about involuntary submission to manufactured charisma. I don't like this style of storytelling. It ignores the greatest power of the camera's eye: to allow the audience to move in and out of spaces: personal spaces, narrative spaces, time folding, sometimes God, sometimes his victim. There's freedom and imagination when the eye is freed, and this is the real power of the filmmaker.

But with Martin, he ignores this power: the camera is bound. We are the weak sidekick, forced into respect. All the competence (here the editing is superb) is turned to an end which ruins the experience. Scorsese knows this, in fact at this point in his life he was feeling it, and that is why we get what we do. A camera that forces respect.

But alone of his films (I am re-seeing them all), this has a sweet pleasure. In the midst of the obligatory scene where DeNiro takes to himself in the mirror, we get a wonderful reference to Brando. This frames the film and explicitly acknowledges that most films (except those of the real geniuses) are about other films, not life. `Bull' stands on `Waterfront's' structure.

And DeNiro stands on Brando's shoulders. How brave to mouth the lines. Brando was intense, but that was not his innovation, it was an ability to project two performances simultaneously. Here DeNiro tries to equal or best that by playing three characters: himself besting Brando, his character equalling Brando's, and Brando wrestling with his character (which we see in `Waterfront' as a man wrestling with his inner self).

Watch how DeNiro tries. How he pushes too hard (something we can now call the Pacino/Cage error), how he loses control and knows it. Scorsese knows it too, and it speaks highly of them both to put DeNiro's `not world class' broken actor as representative of the broken `not world class' boxer. I appreciate that honesty. It makes this my favorite film of his (Scorsese).
Robert De Niro Goes the Distance for Martin Scorsese
In flashback, flabby ex-fighter Robert De Niro (as Jake La Motta) recalls his life, rising from Bronx, NY obscurity to become a World Championship-winning boxer. Unfortunately, the "Raging Bull" finds his soul imprisoned in the boxing ring, with demons on the ropes…

This is an amazing piece of work.

The Robert Chartoff/Irwin Winkler production team does for the seedy side of boxing what they did for the more reputable "Italian Stallion" in "Rocky" (1976). Even without the weight gain, Mr. De Niro certainly deserved his "Best Actor" accolades. Director Martin Scorsese is at an artistic peak and, arguably, should have won as many "Best Director" awards. The supporting performances, from brother Joe Pesci (as Joey) and wife Cathy Moriarty (as Vickie), are also outstanding. Mr. Scorsese, with exemplary editing by Thelma Schoonmaker and superb cinematography by Michael Chapman, creates often wondrous sequences of film art...

One of the best ever…

And, shout out to young apprentice Billy Chartoff, who was learning the ropes in style with "Raging Bull"; remember walking to the movies with sister Jenny from (was it) Apaquoque (or Georgica) Road, EH. Best wishes to you and your siblings. See you in the movies!

********** Raging Bull (11/14/80) Martin Scorsese ~ Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, Cathy Moriarty, Frank Vincent
Gritty yet still maintains beautiful artistic illustration (Like most of Scorsese's movies in that period)
The partnership between revolutionary director Martin Scorsese and iconic actor Robert De Niro which spanned for about 20/25 years will forever be remembered by critics and fans as one of the greatest periods for cinematic achievement. A time were both of these legends peaked in their careers. Of course there were other actors involved (Joe Pesci, Frank Vincent, etc) But the two constants of these movies were Scorsese and De Niro. They are credited with making some of the greatest movies of all time IE; Taxi driver, Raging bull, Goodfellas and Casino just to name a few. These movies have received marvellous critical acclaim and continue to be loved even after 30 after some of them were made. They gave us a look at a world most of us had never seen, the underworld of society. They made us feel for characters we wouldn't usually associate with. And they set a standard for their type of movie which hasn't yet been conquered. But as much as I could talk all day about how these two geniuses revolutionised cinema the main concentration of this review will be based on the 1980 movie raging bull. To an outsider given only a vague idea to the story of Raging bull it is just another boxing movie. But if we look deeper into the surface we find that it is much more. It is more than just another rocky movie, it's not about a brain dead boxer who tries hard and wins it has much more deaph than that. The movie tells the story of an emotionally self destructive boxers rise (ish) And fall. It is a study of a man (Jake La Motta played by De Niro) who keeps knocking himself down everywhere he goes in life. A man who we learn more and more about throughout the course of the movie. We see he abuses the women in his life he sees them as slaves not human beings. We see throughout the course of the movie that he ends up despising himself. We see that he will be willing to change himself just for the sake of masculinity something which most men can relate to. The boxing ring is nothing more than a symbolic parallel to his life outside it. it's almost as if he is punishing himself for what he has done in his life. La Motta ends up in a state were he doesn't demand pity but the audience feels sorry for him anyway. Although La Motta is a scumbag we are still interested and relating with the character throughout the 2 hour long movie. Scorsese makes Raging bull a lot more classical with the use of classical music throughout the films gritty tale it gives us a feel of beauty beneath the surface of this man tough guy exterior.

The film won Robert De Niro a best actor in a leading role Oscar although Scorsese's fully deserving best director Oscar went to Robert Redford.
Damn near if not a perfect movie
Robert DeNiro gives one of his greatest performances of all time in yet another teaming of DeNiro and Scorsese. The films is many many things powerful, intense, sad, depressing, and on and on the list goes, this film goes through a lot in 2 hours. No film critic or fan can go on without seeing this film, as far as film aficionados go this masterpiece is a mandatory must see.

I can say without a doubt this is the best sports drama ever made and is of course one of the best movies of all time. The fight scenes are intense and brutal and the outside ongoing life of La Motta is just as interesting and compelling.Another great aspect of this film is the amazing teaming of DeNiro and Pesci as brothers. The acting, visuals, and story are all top notch and extremely memorable.

There is so much more to say about the film but I can't find the words to express what I'm feeling.In conclusion don't skip this film by any means, it isn't for everybody but for film fans and Scorsese fans this is a major must see. This movie will stick with you in your mind and heart. That's all I can think of to say about this film thanks for reading my review.
