“Raging Bull” (Criterion)

The transfer of one of Martin Scorsese’s masterpieces is simply breathtaking. Approved by the director himself, it feels richer in its use of shadow and light than ever before. To put it simply, this is one of the best American films ever made, a character study that moves like its protagonist, bobbing and weaving through scenes with a combination of grace and power. It’s a film that offers something new to appreciate every time you see it, and my takeaway from this 4K version was just to marvel at Scorsese’s mastery of form so early in his career. There’s nothing about “Raging Bull” that feels four decades old. It would be the best film of 2022 if it came out today. By a long shot. And this edition not only includes the great 4K transfer but two special features that readers of this site should particularly notice: a video essay that includes brilliant insight 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 absolute must-own Criterion releases of 2022.
