A film reel; Actual size=240 pixels wide

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.

Favorite Movie

My favorite mive was She done him wrong she had soe many good lines it was great
