The other night, my wife and I sat down to watch the new 30th Anniversary Blu-ray edition of Martin Scorsese's Raging Bull. I could scarcely believe it's been three decades since...

Raging Bull is a fascinating exploration of the mind of an emotionally disconnected man. It's brutal, crass and impossible to look away -- much like a real boxing match.

When has a performer as fully and uniquely sacrificed himself to the moving-picture cause as De Niro?

Scorsese might never again find a subject as ideal as Jake LaMotta, the Bronx-based boxer whose public bouts and private demons Raging Bull chronicles with such bruising acuity.

Cinema em Cena

Um estudo psicológico brutal sobre um homem dominado pelo ciúme, a insegurança e a paranóia e que traz, além da direção inspirada e expressiva de Scorsese, três atuações formidáveis por parte de De Niro, Pesci e Moriarty.

| Original Score: 5/5

Interesting, rewarding and, at times, surprisingly episodic.

Robert De Niro's metamorphosis into boxing legend Jake La Motta (AKA the Bronx Bull) is one of the most impressive acting transformations on celluloid.

De Niro is always absorbing and credible, even when his character isn't.

This is London

A classic that has everything to do with the capacity of even highly successful men to cope with life in general, and women in particular.

De Niro and Joe Pesci are impeccable and Cathy Moriarty is iconically sexy.

This savagely authentic film about flawed masculinity is worth seeking out for another viewing if the summer's toothless blockbuster fodder is getting you down.

Among the greatest films of the 1980s, but not Scorsese's best.

Martin Scorsese's luminous study of a man at war with his own nature remains undimmed after almost 30 years.

Paul Schrader and Mardik Martin turn in a soulful and intelligent screenplay, one that has blood dripping off the pages.

I can't pan it, but this 1980 fantasy biography of fighter Jake LaMotta seems unquestionably Martin Scorsese's weakest work, at least to that point in his career.

This film does more than make you think about masculinity, it makes you see it -- in a way that's relevant to all men, not just Bronx boxers.
