I'm not entirely sure how to feel about that.

One of the best films of all time and Scorsese's best, technically

Right under every Rocky movie, including Balboa.

It's definitely better than the Rocky sequels but the first Rocky just narrowly beats Raging Bull for the title of the "best boxing film". Both are in my top 20 though!

So, did he fuck his brother's wife?

An emotionally intense story of a winner in the ring and a loser outside. Expertly filmed and edited. The in ring action is phenomenal. De Niro at his all time best as Jake La Motta. Pesci turns in a great performance as La Motta's brother. May be the definitive film of the 80's.

Robert Deniro's greatest performance as Jake La Motta. Masterful direction and editing, excellent performances, and is likely the greatest movie of the 80s. By far the best sports movie ever made
