This 116 page book is a conceptual look at the film Raging Bull directed by Martin Scorsese in 1980. It follows the story of Jake LaMotta the former middleweight boxing champion. It focuses on his character flaws that made him such an iconic character.
Jake LaMotta was an animal in and out of the ring, his obvious character flaws destroyed relationships. I looked at how these flaws are formed and delt with. This is then linked to the film through quotes, from the film and Jake himself.
