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.
Martin Scorsese taught Spike Lee film directing at New York University. Spike's first movie, She's Gotta Have It (1986), was filmed entirely in black and white, except for one scene in color. This film was also filmed entirely in black and white, except for one scene in color.
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...
A rubber tube, to carry fake blood, is visible behind Janiro's nose as Jake punches it.
The film is in black and white, but during the opening credits, the title is in red letters.
