“Raging Bull” (Criterion)

The transfer of one of Martin Scorsese’s masterpieces is simply breathtaking. Approved by the director himself, it feels richer than ever in its use of shadow and light. To put it simply, it’s one of the best American films ever made, a character study that moves like its protagonist, dancing and weaving through scenes with a combination of grace and power. It’s a film that offers something new to enjoy every time you see it, and what I took away from this 4K release was just marveling at Scorsese’s mastery of form so early in his career. There’s nothing in “Raging Bull” that feels four decades old. It would be the best movie of 2022 if released today. By a long shot. And this edition includes not only the excellent 4K transfer, but also two special features that readers of this site should particularly notice: a video essay that includes brilliant ideas from our very own Sheila O’Malley and a physical essay from the man who literally wrote the book. on De Niro, the great Glenn Kenny. This is one of the must-have Criterion releases of 2022.
