    One of the finest pieces of cinema i've ever had the pleasure of watching. The editing, directing, acting, and cinematography are all, - in my opinion - perfect.

    This isn't a dialogue, story, or plot-driven movie, but the screenplay does it's job.

    For me, this has that indescribable cinematic magic, the kind that only true classic films possess, the kind that can't be emulated. I've seen quite a few great boxing films, but for me, none compare to Raging Bull (so far anyway).

    You can't help but respect this quality of film making.

    If you're watching this thinking you're about to see a sports movie about boxing then, you couldn't be more wrong. Stylistically speaking, this film is beautiful to watch regarding DeNiro's acting, the editing, the cinematography and of course Scorsese's skills.

    Do not watch this if you focus more on the plot, dialogue and story because this won't be your cup of tea; that's certain.

    The acting, directing, and cinematography are wonderful, yes. But the grandiose style seems almost ironic in contrast with lowbrow LaMotta. He's mean-spirited, childish, and quite frankly, an idiot. His tantrums are as predictable as they are pointless. Am I missing something? As a subject he seems way too easy for Scorsese's or De Niro's skills. 5 years 9 months ago
