“Don’t overcook it. You overcook it, it’s no good. It defeats its own purpose.”
Scorsese gives us probably his most hard-hitting film (pun not intended) in the over three-decade-old Raging Bull, providing a great break in the routine of inspirational boxing films. This examination of a tragic inevitability isn’t for the faint of heart, but it’s sure to stick with viewers long after their (first) experience with it.
