    The film that many consider the finest of its decade, Raging Bull, has aged well, and not just because it was filmed in black and white. show more

    Gene Siskel Chicago Tribune

    Filmed in black-and-white and shockingly well acted by De Niro, Raging Bull suggests that if you are looking for the source of evil in the world, you don't have to look any further than yourself. It's inside you or it isn't. And it comes out or it doesn't. [19 Dec 1980] show more

    Austin Chronicle

    The performances are riveting and the visuals are stunning. The boxing sequences are brutally realistic - there are no crappy Rocky theatrics here - and the humanity oozes out of every scene. show more

    Sheila Benson Los Angeles Times

    One of the bloodiest and most beautiful reflections on atonement in the Scorsese canon... It is still one of cinema's most breathtaking films. show more
