Video Capsule: Raging Bull 9.5/10
A film biography of the outspoken prize-fighter from the 1940's, Jake La Motta. His reputation became known everywhere, that he couldn't be stopped. The same power and drive that created his career, also led to his downfall.

This is the classic example of great movie making. The acting in this is top notch. DeNiro is the only one who could pull off that La Motta. It is truly one of the most depressing films I have ever seen and that means it had quite an impact on me. It isn't too often that movies have such an impact on me. I strongly think that everyone should see this and you won't be let down.

In total agreement with you..but why 9.5??

Anyway, the film is still widely regarded as
the most realistic boxing film ever and as the film of
the eighties. It is extremely violent with it's
depiction of domestic violence..and what I found
disturbing, the extreme swearing in the film
(especially in front of children).

I did find it depressing but honestly it left me
feeling really frastrated with Di Nero's character obviously very stupid SOB!
