Robert De Niro gives an unforgettable performance as Jake La Motta, a
boxer with psychological and sexual complexities that erupt into violence
both in and out of the ring. Joe Pesci and Cathy Moriarty are equally
impressive as the brother who falls prey to Jake’s mounting paranoia and
jealousy and the fifteen-year-old girl who becomes his most prized trophy.
Vivid and unremitting in its uncompromising brutality and honesty, the
film and its fight sequences are famed for their realism. The film earned
eight Oscar® nominations and won two, including Best Actor for De Niro.

Hollywood Rebels: The Art and Legacy of Roger Corman
Roger Corman’s sixty-year career has built a legacy that is unparalleled. Throughout the 50’s and 60’s he set the
pace to become Hollywood’s most prolific filmmaker. He was the youngest director ever to be honored with retrospectives
at the Cinematheque Francaise in Paris, the BFI and MoMA. Along with directing more than 50 feature films,

he helped launch the careers of many of the New Hollywood filmmakers of the 1970’s. Among many others, Martin
Scorsese, Frances Ford Coppola, Peter Bogdanovich, Joe Dante, James Cameron, Ron Howard, and Jonathan Demme
all ascended from the ‘Corman Film School’ of filmmaking.
