50 Greatest Movie Scenes Of All Time

1. Raging Bull - Opening Scene

The opening scene of Raging Bull is one of those rare, easily identifiable ones. It is the greatest of all time in my opinion, because not only does it define the character of Jake LaMotta, but it defines the entire film. We see Jake, in the ring, on his own, in a corner, fighting himself, surrounding by people but forever alone. All elements of it scream perfection: the score sends a shiver down my spine each and every time I hear it; the way De Niro played it sends a shiver down my spine each and every time I see him; this scene sends a shiver down my spine each and every time I see it. If you want to talk about perfection, talk about Raging Bull. http://youtu.be/wQhwi8kk-dE So there are my top 50 movie scenes of all time. Anything you'd like to add? You know where the comments are...
