It’s Scorsese Season by David Stratton at NFSA. Good and creepy times.
‘This is the high watermark of the Scorsese-De Niro partnership. De Niro plays the fanatically aggressive middleweight boxer, paranoid, driven and unhappy, who alienates everyone around him as he descends into self-loathing and loneliness. Joe Pesci and Cathy Moriarty are superb as his brother and wife. Its editor, Thelma Schoonmaker, established the movie as a classic example of her art, and the monochrome cinematography is superb. Unmissable.’ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian.
