    Product Description

    Robert De Niro teams with director Martin Scorsese in this "extraordinarily compelling" (Leonard Maltin) film that introduced unflinching realism to stunned audiences in 1980. An "exceedingly violentas well as poetic" fight picture that maps "the landscape of the soul" (The New York Times),Raging Bull garnered eight Oscar® nominations* and won two, including Best Actor for De Niro. De Niro gives the performance of his career 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 are unforgettable as the brother who falls prey to Jake's mounting paranoia and jealousy, and the fifteen-year-old girl who becomes his most prized trophy. A "brilliantly photographed film of extraordinary power and rare distinction" (The Wall Street Journal), Raging Bullis filmmaking at its riveting best.

    Additional Features

    For Raging Bull's 30th anniversary, MGM gives Martin Scorsese's bruising masterpiece the showcase it deserves. In his commentary with editor Thelma Schoonmaker, Scorsese recalls that Robert De Niro, who plays middleweight champion Jake La Motta, brought the boxer's biography to his attention in 1974 (De Niro and Schoonmaker earned Oscars for their efforts). After Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver) and Mardik Martin (Mean Streets) handed the director a screenplay, Scorsese and De Niro gave it a polish, and the shoot was on. Outside of a 1964 framing device, the narrative concentrates on the 1940s when the Bronx fighter took up with 15-year-old Vickie (Cathy Moriarty), a Lana Turner look-alike.

    With assistance from his brother, Joey (Joe Pesci), La Motta's fortunes rose until he lost the ability to tell the difference between the ring and real life. He battled his share of sluggers--Cis Corman cast actual boxers for the fight sequences--but his primary opponents were Vickie, Joey, and his own warped self-image. By the '50s, he was just another has-been hocking prized possessions and cracking jokes for money (paving the way for Scorsese's King of Comedy). De Niro famously bulked up for the role (a broadened nose and wiry hairstyle made the transformation complete), while Michael Chapman's dazzling cinematography--black and white with slow-motion sequences and flashes of color--remains a wonder to behold.

    Two more commentaries allow the writers (plus La Motta) and cast and crew (including Chapman and musician/composer Robbie Robertson) to recount their contributions. Other extras include footage of La Motta in his prime; Moriarty's soft-spoken appearance on The Tonight Show; a four-parter on the production; and featurettes on Scorsese and De Niro, the reflections of fighters and filmmakers, and the critical reception. Naturally, there's some repetition here, but true fans need this Blu-ray in their collection. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

    5.0 out of 5 stars Raging indeed-revised for Blu-ray edition February 23, 2005
    Format:DVD
    Revised for Blu-ray release:The two disc 30th Anniversary release combo on Blu-ray looks extremely good but is flawed--there's a noticeable translucent strip in the corner of the image that is slightly brighter than the rest of the image. It's a bit distracting at first but once you get into the film, you'll find it less noticeable. This flaw was also visible in the DVD edition of the film. The transfer is very good but not flawless.

    There are some new special features for this edition including: "Marty & Bobby" featuring director and actor interviewed about how they ended up working on the film together (DeNiro brought the project to Scorsese). "Raging Bull-Reflections of a Classic" features four directors Neil LeBute, Richard Kelly and Kimberly Pierce discussing the influence and impact of the film. "Remembering Jake" allows us to listen in as the Veteran Boxer's Association of New York do their monthly get together and discuss Jake LaMotta. "Marty on Film" allows Scorsese to discuss his career as a director. All of the new material presented on this disc is in HD.

    We get the previous special features carried over from the previous DVD edition. The set also includes a DVD with no special features included as well. The packaging is problematic--the Blu-ray packging is about as flimsy as it comes with the "green" packaging that isn't solid with plastic "bands" supporting the disc. The only problem is that if something pokes the packaging it'll rip the paper (and in my case it also caused the Blu-ray to be badly scratched. It also means that it's MORE likely to get knocked loose inside the packaging because it doesn't hold the disc as securely.

    Format:DVD
    A mood masterpiece from director Martin Scorsese, Raging Bull is the authority on boxing films as well as cinematic biographies. The life and times of Jake La Motta (Robert De Niro) are as troubled and bumpy as that of any great figure. A furious man from the backstreets of the Bronx, La Motta rises from the ravages of poverty to become one of the most unbeatable contenders in boxing history. Set amid the backdrop of the 1940's and 50's, this film is the modern pinnacle of the always-arresting theme of Rise and Fall. A man who had everything he wanted, La Motta was forever haunted by personal demons that were expressed through forceful paranoia and the obsessive need for reassurance. Driven by anger rather than passion, he was able to defeat any opponent with sheer grit and thirst for blood. Among his Achilles heels were his young wife, Vikki, whom he met when she was only fifteen. Moving at a steady and always involving beat, La Motta is shown taking more beatings, winning more titles and self-destructing. As through a looking glass, there is always a feeling of not knowing what this fighting man will do next. And in the great tradition of Scorsese's Italian American fables, this film forges a somber and exciting attitude all the way through. Intensifying the film's dismal and violent beauty is the soundtrack, which mainly consists of the Intermezzo, from Cavalleria Rusticana, an Italian opera by Pietro Mascagni. This choice of scores not only furthers the feel of darkness, but it immediately foreshadows La Motta's downfall, while at the same time bestowing Italian artistry on the picture. Always worried that his wife is cheating on him, and thinking that his counterparts are working against him, Jake La Motta ventures beyond the point of no return. Read more ›

    5.0 out of 5 stars Bull on blu is a knock-out! February 26, 2009
    Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
    This is a blu-ray for film lovers. The film grain has been reproduced beautifully. There is some minor ringing on a few high contrast edges, but other than that nit-pick, this looks just like watching it at the movie theater, but with a pristine print. Looks just as Scorcese intended in gorgeous black and white. One of the greatest films has been given a great restoration and now looks its very best on blu-ray!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible September 11, 2004
    Format:DVD
    Engaging, beautifully crafted biography of middle weight boxer Jake LaMotta. The cinematography employs monochrome instead of colour, a great idea because it perfectly mirrors LaMotta's dark persona. LaMotta is depicted here as a confused and paranoid pugilist, the film chronicles his career all the way to the championship belt. DeNiro is so convincing as LaMotta, that I ask myself sometimes if the personality he assumed for Raging Bull was how he must have once been himself. Another amazing thing DeNiro's sheer determination to accurately portray LaMotta in his post-boxing days by adding on fifty pounds! Let's not forget, he trained hard just to achieve the envious physique of LaMotta IN his boxing days! Joe Pesci is perfectly suited to the role of LaMotta's brother and manager, Joey, a quick talking, foul-mouthed but defensive and loyal sibling (and perhaps the only person that is allowed to critcise Jake and get away with it). Cathy Moriarty excels as Vicki LaMotta, Jake's supportive, strong and tolerant wife.

    The movie is a classic example of near flawless film-making. Not only is the acting first rate, but the script, cinematography, direction and editing is also of the highest calibre. The screenplay is based on LaMotta's autobiography and of course that gives the dialogue a realistic and true to life feel. Elegant black and white enhances the already brilliant cinematography throughout the film, characterised by picturesque, static camera shots, sharply juxtaposed with the vibrant and kinetic camera work of the fight scenes. The quick, crisp editing to the boxing matches help accentuate the hectic, haphazard ambience of a real duel.
