Raging Bull18

Directed by Martin Scorsese | USA | 1980 | 2h 9m | Starring Robert De Niro, Cathy Moriarty, Joe Pesci, Frank Vincent, Nicholas Colasanto

A lacerating biopic of Jake LaMotta, a middleweight boxer who rose through the ranks, earned his shot at the middleweight crown, and faded into obscurity as his life spiralled into paranoia, jealously, and self-destruction. With it’s extraordinary black-and-white cinematography, Robert De Niro’s brutish physicality, and Frank Warner’s ingenious sound design – Martin Scorsese created one of the truly great and visionary works of modern cinema.

Reviews

‘Scorsese might never again find a subject as ideal as Jake LaMotta, the Bronx-based boxer whose public bouts and private demons Raging Bull chronicles with such bruising acuity.’
★★★★★
Matthew Connolly, Slant Magazine

‘The use of pop and opera and the black-and-white photography (by Michael Chapman) are exemplary, the actual boxing a compulsive dance of death.’
★★★★★
Ben Walter, Time Out

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
