Raging Bull review
6th March 2012
This film doesn't work. Its FAR too long
The subject matter is a very unsympathetic character made worse by the fact that guy, Jake La Motta is real
Domestic violence and underage girls. Its not a nice film!
I feel uncomfortable watching Raging Bull which is not a feeling I get with most films hailed as 'Classics'
This film may be a very accurate depiction of a violent wife beating scumbag and that is probably its biggest flaw
If the guy were a good guy maybe I would give a toss when he got given a hiding
Theres no denying that its been well made but its a pile of shiite. Far too long. I've never been able to sit through the whole film without falling asleep
