About the Movie

RAGING BULL is director Martin Scorsese's lacerating film biography of middleweight boxing champion Jake La Motta, who was known during his brief reign as 'The Bronx Bull.' La Motta (played with extraordinary brilliance by Robert De Niro) had early lessons in life: to steal and to fight. His aggression in the ring was a means of combating deep-seated anxieties and emotional fears. This determination and rage turned him from a young hoodlum into a champion. But his drive for the title, his brutality outside of the ring and his almost-psychotic sexual jealousy will destroy his marriage to Vickie (Cathy Moriarty) and his deepest friendships. After Vickie leaves him, a final violent confrontation with his patient, supportive brother and manager, Joey (Joe Pesci) -and the loss of his title, La Motta begins a downward slide.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Though Raging Bull has only three principal characters, it is a big film, its territory being the landscape of the soul. – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: De Niro is always absorbing and credible, even when his character isn't. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: An underdog in its day and a classic today. – Glenn Abel, Hollywood Reporter, Feb 23, 2016

Fresh: 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, Jun 24, 2010

At last, at last, at last! To have this masterpiece not available for digital download all these years: It defeats its own purpose. But now Jake, Joey, Tommy, Salvy and the whole crew will be at our disposal whenever we desire.


And finally, after years of waiting, iTunes adds Raging Bull to their store.
I haven’t even watched it yet, but, Scorsese, De Niro, Frank Vincent, AND Pesci? It’s impossible that it is anything less than 5 stars.
