Let´s Get Ready To Rumble: Manson and Raging Bull

Considering the sometimes volatile nature of Mr. Manson I decided to release this theme blog highlighting one of the best films of all time, "Raging Bull" with Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci.

"Jake La Motta is a young boxer who trains hard to become number one at middleweight. With the help of his brother, Joey, you will see this dream come true much later. But fame and success only get worse things. Their marriage is going from bad to worse because of his secret life with other women, and on the other hand you push the mafia to fix matches. After spending all the money I had, back where it started. "

The intro to "Raging Bull" shows the figure of Jake La Motta with his characteristic robe in the ring training. During the concert series "Rape of the World" Manson appears with a white robe in the middle of the stage. We're not sure if he was referring to this movie but the concept is similar.

Raging Bull, like many other films highlights the rise and defeat of an idol of boxing, and one can compare it with the phenomenon that happens around rockstars, and they also have their highs and lows. There are even those who have a guilty pleasure of watching famous people hit rock bottom and then revindicating themselves. That's nothing new, but the feeling remains true today ...
