Robert DeNiro deservedly won an Oscar as brutish boxer Jake “The Bronx Bull” LaMotta in this Martin Scorsese film that’s considered one of the greatest movies ever made. With its commanding direction, breakneck editing, and stark black-and-white photography, Raging Bull chronicles LaMotta’s life from his heyday in the ‘40s to his downfall in the ‘50s to his reemergence as a nightclub comic in the ‘60s. Its knockout supporting cast includes Joe Pesci (Goodfellas), Cathy Moriarty (Patti Cake$), Frank Vincent (The Sopranos) and Nicholas Colasanto (Cheers).
