I watched Raging Bull for the first time last night, and quite frankly, I am a little confused as to how this is #24 on AFI's top 100 list. DeNiro and Pesci are both superb, the cinematography is outstanding, but the storyline seemed to be quite eratic. We'd see Brando beatup someone and then be mean to his wife over and over again. Also, I was confused about him throwing the fight in the middle of the movie. I understand him "never going down for anybody," but as far as I know, throwing a fight is the worst form of "going down" that a boxer can do. Anyone care to point out what i'm missing about this film? On a related note, what can I expect from On the Waterfront when I watch it later tonight?
