This is not a documentary by any stretch of the imagination.

It is, however, an absolutely fantastic film. Robert DeNiro IS Jake LaMotta. He plays the role to the hilt, as 'young' and 'old' Jake and everything in between. There are a few scenes in the movie where he was just ad-libbing, even -- his performance is really amazing.

From a technical standpoint, the film has some amazing stuff going on as well. For example, different boxing matches were shot in boxing rings of different sizes, subtly making Jake seem huge when he was dominating somebody and insignificant when he was getting his rear end handed to him.

This movie is, in large part, a train wreck happening in slow motion, but it's a train wreck that's acted and directed phenomenally. Just watch it.
