Emotionally self-destructive boxer, Jake La Motta's journey through life, as the violence and temper that leads him to the top in the ring destroys his life outside it.
The word "fuck" is used one hundred fourteen times in this film.
Jake La Motta:
I remember those cheers / They still ring in my ears / After years, they remain in my thoughts. / Go to one night / I took off my robe, and what'd I do? I forgot to wear shorts. / I recall every fall / Every hook, every jab / The worst way a guy can...
Early on in the movie, Jake tells Joey to punch him. Joey does so, repeatedly, and leaves his ring on thereby cutting Jake with each new punch. Yet right before he throws the last punch, all of the puncture wounds in Jake's forehead have been removed.
The film is in black and white, but during the opening credits, the title is in red letters.
