Example text

Scorsese claimed that the only way to deliver it was “so cold that you concentrate on the words” (SS, 77). ” With La Motta looking in the mirror as he speaks, an ambiguity arises. That is, does “Charlie” refer to Jake’s brother Joey, who seems to be in an analogous situation with Terry’s brother Charlie, or does Jake staring at himself in the mirror imply that he himself is culpable? Does Jake blame his brother for his compromises, his ring failures, Vickie’s ostensible infidelities? Or has he finally faced up to his own responsibility?

Raging Bull employs an array of image and sound devices to portray Jake La Motta’s emotions in the course of the fight. Most noteworthy is that the camera almost always stays in the ring with Jake rather than shooting from the side or above the ring. The film develops the sense that inside the ring becomes equivalent to inside Jake’s psyche. Earlier boxing films, such as Kid Galahad, Body and Soul, and Somebody Up There Likes Me, have shots within the ring that intercut with more distant perspectives and highlight the decisive moments of the bout; but no boxing film has designed its fighting sequences almost exclusively within the ring and employed that distinctive view as a basis for the boxer’s subjectivity.
