“It is a vicious circle. Freud called it the ‘madonna-whore complex.’ Groucho Marx put it somewhat differently: ‘I wouldn’t belong to any club that would have me as a member.’ It amounts to a man having such low self-esteem that he (a) cannot respect a woman who would sleep with him, and (b) is convinced that, given the choice, she would rather be sleeping with someone else. I’m making a point of the way Raging Bull equates sexuality and violence because one of the criticisms of this movie is that we never really get to know the central character. I don’t agree with that. I think Scorsese and Robert De Nirodo a fearless job of showing us the precise feelings of their central character, the former boxing champion Jake LaMotta.”
