Spectacularly heartfelt performance by Cameron Mitchell
WW II Vet and professional boxer Barney Ross became addicted to morphine. This stark but well-told tale takes us into his inner psyche and allows us to share his inner torments as he struggles to overcome his addictions and rebuild his self-image. The low-budget supporting cast is nonetheless well selected and conveys the overall tone and mood perfectly. Watch this before renting Raging Bull again and contrast an underrated and natural rendering of the true heart and soul of troubled blue color boxer with Scorsese's highly stylized filming of DeNiro's technically brilliant but utterly soulless portrayal of Jake LaMotta.
