Abstract:

This film traces the life of Jake La Motta through his years of success as a boxer in the forties to humiliation in the fifties ending with La Motta as a nighclub entertainer in 1964. It is not however a conventional bio-pic with an explanatory approach to character. The exterior drama is displaced by La Motta's struggle with interior demons. A radical awareness inflects the modes of the bio-pic and film noir, through the fractured structure, to link aggression with sexual repression and the denial of self with redemption.
