Director Martin Scorsese’s Raging Bull tells the story of Jake LaMotta, Middleweight Champion of the World and the only fighter to defeat Sugar Ray Robinson in his prime. But LaMotta was a loose cannon, just as volatile and violent outside of the ring as in it. A great study in the culture of urban violence and uncontrollable anger and rage.
Among the takeaways from this movie are:
- Physical violence is not an appropriate reaction to most conflicts
- Rage becomes a habit if not recognized
- Regret may be delayed but it is inevitable
