The new branch of the American Cinematheque out here in Santa Monica just ran RAGING BULL this evening and the film has even more impact now than it did in 1980. There was an amazing crowd there — many high school students (my daughter who is graduating high school this year came along with us and was completely swept up by the film), as well as the Upper West Side New Yorker types.

It is still an amazing character study, done with subtlety and understanding. It is wonderful and I wanted to let you know that it wiped everyone out who was there tonight. Seeing it on the big screen is the best way to get into it. I hope DVDs don’t take over the world!!

You deserve the link. Your blog is one of the freshest ones around. I find myself constantly laughing and/or crying out loud when I read it, which disturbs the other people in the office or at home when I do it.
