Quote Review: Raging Bull (1980)

“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.

Quote Review: The Docks of New York

“Are you goin’ to let me have a good time in my own quiet way, or must I take this place apart?”

For a silent black and white film, The Docks of New York is surprisingly effective at creating a series of similar shots that are every bit as drab and gritty as they are fascinating. At the very least, it’s interesting to look back on one of the earlier works of film and see said style handled well even by today’s standards.
