A perfect pairing of Sound and Vision part 5. The opening credits of Raging Bull

Robert De Niro as Jake LaMotta. Slow motion shadowboxing to the glorious strains of Intermezzo from Cavalleria rusticana.

It's a thing of beauty. The misty black and white photography and then the blood red lettering of the film title. And one of the few times we see LaMotta at peace in the entire film. In his element, doing his own thing.



Perfect.
