Raging Bull

129' - 1980 - Drama, Biography, Sport - Dialogue: English
Director: Martin Scorsese With: Robert De Niro, Cathy Moriarty, Joe Pesci
In 1941 Jake La Motta is an up-and-coming boxer, trim and full of ambition, beginning his climb to the middleweight championship. He doesn't just win his bouts, he beats his opponents bloody consumed by a violent need to destroy them. In his personal life La Motta's morals are questionable as well. Vickie attracts his lustful eye while she is still a teenager and though married, La Motta dates the ice-cold blonde. He sleeps with her and after discarting his first wife, marries her. His brother and manager Joey makes a truce with the maffia, which seeks to control La Motta's career for gambling interests.
