Raging Bull

Scorsese might never again find a subject as ideal as Jake LaMotta, the Bronx-born boxing legend whose public bouts and private demons Raging Bull chronicles with such bruising acuity. ” Matthew Connolly, The Slant

Presented in an unrivalled, director-approved 4K restoration, Raging Bull has never looked more ready for the title shot.

Martin Scorsese and Robert de Niro. This director/actor duo will forever be remembered for this collaboration in portraying the life of Jake LaMotta, a boxer whose reputation for tenacity and success in the ring is offset by his troubled domestic life: full of rage, jealousy, and suspicion.

A stunning B&W portrait of prizefighter Jake LaMotta (Robert De Niro) in the 1940’s, and his harrowing, destructive bouts in and out of the ring. Winner of Academy Awards for Best Actor (De Niro) and Editing (Thelma Schoonmaker) and with co-star Joe Pesci, RAGING BULL is a savagely authentic film about flawed masculinity.
