Directed by: Martin Scorsese
Starring: Robert De Niro, Cathy Moriarty, Joe Pesci, Frank Vincent, Nicholas Colasanto, Theresa Saldana
Synopsis: The true story of Jake La Motta, middleweight boxer.
De Niro was great, Pesci was very good, the fights looked painful (both in and out of the ring), the dialogue was tedious at times but felt honest. I hated the characters and I didn't really like the movie but it was so well made that I couldn't take my eyes off the screen.
Harsh, but it certainly felt realistic. And DeNiro definintely deserved his Academy nod for this one.Added 26 October 2004 at 9:36 PM
