Bleed For This: Best Boxing Films

Raging Bull (1980)

It’s a film like this that makes you remember how good Robert De Niro is. This riveting film follows Jake La Motta (De Niro), a middleweight boxing champion who has a tendency to bring his boxing aggression home with him. Plagued by anger and jealousy, we bear witness to a torn family going through some of the hardest challenges in life, while Jake remains desperate to stay in the game. De Niro’s powerful portrayal earned him an Academy Award and made director Martin Scorsese a household name, cementing their partnership as one of the greatest of all time. This film really was one of the first to truly shed light on the harsh realities that boxers go through and how the glory begins to fade after a win.
