Girlfight

Dir. Karyn Kusama
With Michelle Rodriguez, Jaime Tirelli, Paul Calderón
2000, 110min, 35mm

 

Michelle Rodriguez delivers a fierce breakout performance as a troubled Brooklyn teenager who discovers a sense of purpose in the boxing ring. Four years before Million Dollar Baby, Karyn Kusama’s powerfully raw Sundance Grand Prize winner reclaimed the boxing movie as a vehicle for a tough, complex Latina heroine making her mark in a macho world.

 
Raging Bull

Dir. Martin Scorsese
With Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, Cathy Moriarty
1980, 129min, 35mm

 

Director-actor dream team Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro reached their apex with this bruising boxing opera. De Niro’s transformative performance as self-destructive middleweight champ Jake LaMotta and Scorsese’s virtuoso stylistics (abetted by the driving rhythms of Thelma Schoonmaker’s Oscar-winning editing) come together for one of the most explosive studies of toxic machismo ever put on screen.
