Raging Bull (Martin Scorsese, USA, 1980)

The most obvious basis for the film’s claim to greatness lies in Scorsese’s devastating critique of the very codes of masculinity that shaped him as a filmmaker, and in Robert De Niro’s performance, through which that critique is made flesh.
— Amy Taubin, Village Voice

Robert De Niro stars as Jake LaMotta, the Italian-American middleweight boxer whose obsessive rage, sexual jealousy, and animalistic appetite destroyed his relationships with his wife (Cathy Moriarty) and well-intentioned brother-cum-manager (Joe Pesci). With a screenplay by Paul Schraeder and filmed in luminious black n white, Raging Bull is visually stunning and one of Martin Scorsese's finest films. 

Screened in tribute to Frank Vincent (1937-2017) and Jake LaMotta (1922 - 2017)
