Impressive Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci in a classical Scorsese movie.
This film marked the third reunion between Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro after “Mean Streets” and “Taxi Driver”. This time Scorsese invited Paul Schrader (‘Taxi Driver’) and Mardik Martin (‘Mean Streets’ ) to write the film script that is loosely based on La Motta’s novel. Raging Bull tells the true story based of Jack La Motta a middleweight boxer whose rage, violence and temper made him king of the ring while on the other hand destroying his life slowly. The greatest demon of all we have to fight is actually deep within all of us.
Classic examination of masculinity
The story of boxer Jake La Motta from his rising star in the 1940’s through to his own downfall and his eventual living on the cabaret circuit in the present day.
Scorsese and De Niro nobody needs say any more. Whether it be media satire (King of Comedy), small time thugs (Mean Streets) or real gangsta s**t (Goodfellas), the two rarely miss. This was one of their best to date (and probably for ever). The story is fascinating in itself but as an examination of masculinity it excels. The film allows us to watch a man who goes along with all the things he thinks make him a man even when those characteristics and habits begin to destroy everything he has his marriage, his realtionships and his career. Combine this with the gripping boxing tale of ups and downs and you have a film that never outstays it’s welcome.
Scorsese is on top form the use of black and white any have been a quality issue, but he uses it well. The fight scenes are other worldly exaggerated to the extent that it is breathtaking and more shocking than previous boxing scenes in other movies. My favourite effect is the sound editing in the fights where silence and calm seem to descend just before key moments ..amazing. The relationship stuff is also gripping and Scorsese handles he human cost just as well as he shows us the physical beatings.
De Niro is amazing the method stuff alone is great, but his whole performance is intense. Similarly Moriaty, Pesci and Frank Vincent are excellent however they all stand in De Niro’s shadow.
Overall an excellent film on so many levels, as a story, as a examination of masculinity, as a sports film, as a lesson in direction and editing ..this excels in so many ways may it never drop out of the top ten from the twentieth century!
The most important “boxing-movie” of all times
Jake La Motta’s story is no doubt the best movie about boxing of all times together with Robert Wise’s The Set-Up. Besides the legendary performance of Robert De Niro, there are many things in this film that will remain in my heart forever: the splendid black & white, the contrast between the slow moving scenes and the frenetic ones, the choice of the music and the sense of loss which entangles the whole movie. De Niro faces another “born loser” role (after Travis Bickle, John Rubin, Johnny Boy) and strikes again; Martin Scorsese is the most poetic director of the last 30 years.
