Brilliantly directed by Scorsese and featuring a magnificent Oscar-winning performance by De Niro – who gained nearly 50 pounds to play the older, fatter LaMotta – Raging Bull is one of the most powerful boxing films ever made. Based on the autobiography of middleweight champion Jake LaMotta, the film chronicles his life from 1941 until the mid-1960s, and is chiefly concerned with the irrational and violent LaMotta's struggle to find peace within himself. Running time: 2h29, including ads and trailers.
