Raging Bull

Raging Bull

An operatic look at a man whose greatest enemy is himself, Raging Bull throws us into the violence of the ring, the corruption of the back room, and the madness of Jake LaMotta. Fuelled by rage and jealousy he tears down his family and entire life, succumbing to his inner demons. With a flawless cast and crew, this is one of the finest films from a stellar career for both Scorsese and DeNiro. “Jake LaMotta fought like he didn’t deserve to live” (Martin Scorsese).

WINNER: Academy Awards 1981 (Best Actor; Film Editing). BAFTAs 1982 (Editing; Newcomer).
