RAGING BULL (1980)
A tragic figure finds redemption. If there's hope for him, there's hope for humanity. Scorsese made his most poetic film in stunning black and white with the intention of never making another film again. He put everything he had into it (as did De Niro). The results are so powerful, the viewer truly feels as if they are intruding in on these character's lives.
Director: Martin Scorsese
