What the community says about Raging Bull
- "Remember when Robert De Niro was known for being a serious actor and in good movies? If you've only experienced Bobby D in his comedic roles of late, you're missing out. Raging Bull is second to only a couple other movies that really showcase the genius of De Niro. It's a biopic about a 40's prize fighter, played by De Niro and showcases more of the home life of Jake Lemotta and his notorious insecurities despite his success in the ring. Taxi Driver may be up there as De Niro's best, but this isn't far behind."
- "Raging Bull is one of the most gripping, brutal, and magnetic films ever made. I myself am not a fan of boxing--I find it hard to like sports that I wouldn't enjoy playing myself. However, like or dislike of boxing doesn't really matter in this movie. This movie features Robert De Niro at his best (long before slumming for sub-par Hollywood comedies and slashers) as famed boxer Jake La Motta, whose massive insecurity makes Woody Allen look arrogant. Always worried about his wife leaving him, at one point grilling his brother (Joe Pesci, in his memorable screen debut) to see if he had, uh, indulged, La Motta was like an alternate history version of Brando from On The Waterfront, only with many more "F"-words--he wanted more than anything else to be the top, and then when he got there, he promptly lost everything, no longer having any worlds left to conquer. De Niro, of course, put on a ton of weight for the movie's end, and he delivers really bad stand-up in anonymous night clubs, having alienated nearly everyone in his path by his various demons and neuroses."

in What are the best movies"Ranging Bull is a cult classic that should be on every movie lovers MUST SEE list. A timeless classic, Robert De Niro showcases his talent in a masterpiece, directed by non other than Martin Scorsese. I first saw this movie with my Father, and I'm so glad he opened me up to such a great film."
