Raging Bull

Raging Bull

Revisited with Jared at Tribeca showing outside at Battery Park. 

First public viewing of a movie in quite a while… which felt real nice. Was even more struck by this one the second time around. 

The character is so disturbing… so wrong… you still feel some love and empathy for him, but are shocked at his blindness again and again… and yet, there’s a part of us all in him. A part of me, at least. Perhaps that’s why it is so disturbing.  

I love that the movie doesn’t end where it feels like it should. The story goes on. And that’s important. 

Scorsese… master.
