MON­DAY

RAG­ING BULL 12.40AM, ABC

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

Ev­ery el­e­ment that ren­dered Rag­ing Bull an in­stant clas­sic is im­mac­u­lately pre­served in a vi­cious vac­uum. You can hardly miss them: di­rec­tor Martin Scors­ese’s abra­sive, un­spar­ing as­sault on his real- life sub­ject, ex- cham­pion boxer Jake LaMotta. The ruth­less, in- your- face B& W cam­era work. Robert De Niro’s method- pro­pelled mor­ph­ing into LaMotta, the bloated mon­ster. Pure ge­nius.
