4. Raging Bull

A bit of a gap between films while we waited for postman to deliver this one.

What it's about
It's about a boxer, he's quite a mean man.

What I thought
This one was a bit too much for me. Really liked the music, but that's all. Bed was nicer.

What Mum thought
Mum had seen this one a before. "It's a great film. Brilliant performances and one of De Niro's best. You're probably not supposed to empathise with La Motta, but because of this it's too hard for me to love it. Lots of uncomfortable viewing."

What Dad thought
First time for Dad. "A very dark film full of powerful performances from two of my favourite actors. An engaging story with a hateful main character, but beautifully portrayed. Brilliant direction by Scorsese."
