Episode 107: Raging Bull (1980)

ragingbullFor the second film in our look at boxing films, we're moving ahead four years to likely the best performance of his career, Robert De Niro's starring turn in 1980's "Raging Bull!" Directed by Martin Scorsese, and starring De Niro, Cathy Moriarty, Joe Pesci, Frank Vincent, and Nicholas Colasanto, this film tells the story of middleweight bruiser Jake LaMotta, and his life of triumph in the ring, alongside his battles with insecurity and its effect on his relationships, both romantic and familial, throughout his life. Co-written by LaMotta himself, this is a semi-tragic tale of a guy who never knew just how good he really had it. It is, however, one of the greatest films of Scorsese's career, and one of the best films period! Plus, the trio reveal which pre-Marvel Cinematic Universe Marvel films made the cut for this podcast!
