This is a masterpiece. It proves that a film can have violent undertones and overtones, but still illuminate and comment upon violence in a moving, poetic and profound way.

This is, I suppose, a film about a slob, a violent and stupid man whose few brains are knocked even further sideways every time he enters the ring. But, somehow, he becomes intriguing in the telling.

From this disastrous and brutal history, Martin Scorsese has made a brutal, discerning and bleakly beautiful picture.

It's certainly bruising to watch, thanks both to the ferocity of its fight scenes and the violent misogyny of its protagonist. This is a film that doesn't pull any punches when it comes to portraying machismo.

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...

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

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.

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.
August 17, 2007
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.

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.
