The Making of Raging Bull Description
Based on the autobiography of boxer Jake La Motta, "Raging Bull" has been hailed as director Marting Scorsese's masterwork by many critics. It looks at the film both in the context of Amercian cinema in the late seventies and early eighties, and its place in Scorsese's work before and since. The making of "Raging Bull" is a unique analysis of a classic. Exploring the actual shooting and editing of the gritty black- and - white film, the book also looks at past screen treatments of a subject which is violent by its very natrure, and the effect the role had on the lead star Robert de Niro's subsequent career.
'On the back' of The Making of Raging Bull
The history of modern cinema is marked by seminal motion pictures that were genuinely radical in their time and have left a lasting impression ever since. The Film Frontiers series looks at some of these key classics, what went into their making, and how they changed attitudes to movie making as a consequence.
With the triumphs of Mean Streets and Taxi Driver behind him, Raging Bull represented a turning point for director Martin Scorsese, and a quarter of a century later is still considered by many to be his finest achievement.
The making of Raging Bull traces how the often harrowing autobiography of boxer Jake La Motta was brought to the screen, the rigorous care which went into the film's creation, and how it impacted on the lives and careers of all those involved.
