"Raging Bull may prove to be Scorsese's finest achievement" - BFI

When the dynamic duo of Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese come together, they're an unstoppable force. So it was with Raging Bull, the magnum opus of their careers, a dazzling black-and-white profile of the virtues and vices of former professional boxer Jake LaMotta. Scorsese shot the brutal fight scenes – full of blood sprays, swollen eyes, and cut lips – as dance routines, stepping inside the ring and showing the fight from the perspective of the fighters. Outside the ring, Joe Pesci became a household name as Joey, brother and manager to LaMotta, for which he received an Oscar nomination. The gritty photography, by renowned cinematographer Michael Chapman (Taxi Driver, The Detail), comes to life on a 35mm print like you’ve never seen it before.
