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 OscarÂ(r) 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. *1980: Best Picture, Director, Supporting Actor (Pesci), Supporting Actress (Moriarty), Cinematography, Sound, Editing (won)
Martin Scorsese's 1980 Raging Bull has been identified in recent years as one of America's greatest films, and understandably so. Robert De Niro won a richly deserved Academy Award for portraying fighter Jake La Motta, an extremely difficult New York boxer who has to contend with his own temper and jealousy, as well as the Mob and the boxing establishment. Joe Pesci is very good as La Motta's long-suffering brother, and Cathy Moriarty made a strong screen debut as the brawler's glamorous wife. The highly contrasted black-and- white film has a richness, texture, and even sensuality about it that, together with Scorsese's amazing editing (with his Oscar-winning editor Thelma Schoonmaker) and De Niro's focused, tragic performance, is unforgettable. --Tom Keogh

First of all, the slip cover that is included is wonderful. Mine came a little dirty, but nothing a little wiping off couldn't fix. One thing I'm especially happy about is that it doesn't have that annoying blue banner at the top that is usually on most blu-rays. It's a straight full art cover and it looks magnificent. Once you take off that cover, you're treated to a standard Blu-ray box molded in red, and features the same artwork and information the slip cover had. All standard stuff, but opening up the box reveals numerous still frames of behind the scenes work with Scorsese and De Niro, and even a few scenes from the movie itself that are all about the size of a postcard. It's small touches like that that really make that 15 dollar price tag seem like a steal, even more so when seeing how most new blu rays that come out are around 18-20 dollars and have even less than that.
All in all, this is probably the best version of Raging Bull you can get right now. It functions as not only giving you the Blu-ray, DVD, and digital copy, but it also works just as well as a display piece and a collector's item. if you're a fan of this movie or Scorsese in general, it's a crime not to buy it.
The first 99.9% of the film was pretty damn good, though.
Anyone with a Blu-ray player must have this film in their collection. Now all we need is "Taxi Driver" with the Criterion LD commentary, and all will be right. The opening alone is enough to go buy this film. In fact, there are just a handful of movies where the opening defines the movie. They are:
"The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly"
"For A Few Dollars More"
"A Fistful Of Dollars"
"West Side Story"
Any James Bond Film
There are more, but you know where I'm coming from. In the end, why haven't you bought this Blu-ray?
