|Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, Cathy Moriarty & others. Martin Scorsese, director|
(Winner of 2 Academy Awards: Best Actor (Robert De Niro) and Best Film Editing)Robert De Niro teams with director Martin Scorsese in this extraordinary black and white film, which introduced unflinching realism to stunned audiences in 1980. Hailed by the New York Times as an "exceedingly violent as well as poetic" fight picture that maps "the landscape of the soul," Raging Bull garnered eight Academy Award nominations and won two Oscars, including Best Actor for De Niro. He gives an intense performance as Jake La Motta, a boxer whose psychological and sexual complexities erupt into violence both in and out of the ring. Joe Pesci and Cathy Moriarty co-star as the brother who falls prey to Jake's mounting paranoia and jealousy, and the 15-year-old girl he considered his most prized trophy.
