      Martin Scorsese, 1980 • This searing biography of the troubled, rage-fueled boxer Jake LaMotta is perhaps Martin Scorsese’s greatest work; a critics’ poll named it the best film of the 1980s. The film follows LaMotta from his origins in the Bronx slums, through his rise to middleweight boxing champion, to his fall from grace: a prison stint and a post-boxing career as a pathetic stand-up comic. Shot in breathtaking black and white, Raging Bull contains some of the most beautifully stylized boxing scenes ever filmed. The superb cast includes Joe Pesci as LaMotta’s brother, Cathy Moriarty as his wife, and, best of all, Robert DeNiro in the title role. 35mm

      Cost: 5.00
