1980, 18, Directed by Martin ScorseseStarring: Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, Cathy Moriarty, Nicholas Colasanto
Known as one of the best sports films that there are, Raging Bull is a master-class in exactly how it should be done. Evidently timeless, De Niro rages through the film delivering what could be seen as his most faultless performance. Not so much a film, but a journey led by Jake La Motta that provides insight into the destruction of a life outside the ring he succeeds so well inside. The able support (Cathy Moriarty and Joe Pesci as long-suffering wife and brother, respectively), the authentic cinematography and Scorsese’s touches are all just spinning cogs in a giant machine that will continue to spin for generations to come.
