On this page look for all the new hot films, television, and stage appearances. Look for our reviews
and comments on each film. We'll try to also include sample sound and video files, if we can get our hands on some.
(1978; Martin Scorsese, director)
Robert DeNiro's performance in this movie seems to go beyond performance: he sinks so deeply into the role of Jake LaMotta
that you almost forget he's DeNiro. It's not a likable performance, and it's not an especially likable film (the fight sequences
still make me wince), but it is perhaps the high point of his career.
