A-OK.O.

Raging Bull is either the most beautiful ugly movie or the most ugly beautiful movie ever made. Martin Scorsese once again delivers a winner. And Robert De Niro delivers his best performance in a Martin Scorsese movie. Raging Bull tells the true story middleweight boxer Jake LaMotta. In one of the harshest ways possible. As he goes through a tragic downward spiral. Something else that Martin Scorsese likes to do. So that’s what makes Raging Bull an ugly movie. What makes it beautiful is its use of black & white. Which became much more artistic as the years went on. The light and shadows are captured perfectly in this style. Making the brutal reality look great. Raging Bull is another necessary Scorsese film to watch.
