Ain't It Cool News (

The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day is da boss! It’s da boss, it’s da boss, it’s da boss, it’s da boss…

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic! Welcome to the Sunday BtSPotD! Sometimes I use this day as a way to get a kind of goofier or less impressive BTS pic up, but it felt right to dig up this shot of Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro filming Raging Bull. As you can see from the pretty great image below this isn’t my usual Sunday pic. I love the crisp, sharp contrast and the general feeling of good humor from one of the best boxing dramas ever. It’s like the anti-Rocky, who doesn’t love this movie?



If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare or the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here. Tomorrow’s pic is a rather… intimate shot of Arnold Schwarzenegger and one of his directors… -Quint Follow Me On Twitter

    Oh yeah....

    by SobchakSecurity

    Been waiting to see more Scorsese in this. I like this series as a whole, but some really stand out more to me than others. This is one of them. That and yesterdays of EFNY, I would like to see more like that myself.

    Always reminds me of Fredo from the Godfather....Brilliant film maker but just socially desperate. Hey Alan I think you just told us a bit about your self there.

    Scorsese looks like that midget from LOTR

    wearing a Clash shirt is pretty cool. I know he used a couple of songs in Bringing Out The Dead but I always figured that was Robbie Robertson's influence.

  • Dec. 5, 2010, 5:45 p.m. CST

    So are all these site glitches due to an upgrade?

    by RedBull_Werewolf

    Cause that would be awesome... but i suspect they are due to someone just not doing their job properly

  • Dec. 5, 2010, 5:55 p.m. CST

    Love the Clash t-shirt

    by 3 Bag Enema

    I think this calls for someone to score the sequence with their music and slap it up on Youtube. (Not me. I'm busy doing this sort of thing.)

  • Dec. 5, 2010, 5:59 p.m. CST

    I would have liked to see

    Shaquille O'Neal as KAZAAM! the rapping genie playing Jake LaMotta.

    easily the best Scorsese flick, eh?

    by chifforobe

  • Dec. 5, 2010, 6:31 p.m. CST

    The Clash were fucking awesome

    by pleasebanme

    Apparently both Scorsese and DeNiro listened to London Calling nonstop throughout the filming of Raging Bull. Nice to hear some of their songs in Bringing Out The Dead, but I'd love more Clash songs in his epic gangster movies.

  • Dec. 5, 2010, 6:06 p.m. CST

    The Clash appear in The King Of Comedy

    by SubliminalJones

    Joe Strummer, Mick Jones and Paul Simonon are the "street trash" that Sandra Bernhardt's Masha tells off outside Jerry Langford's office.

    Never saw this film...

    by Fremen

    I've always wanted to, but whenever the opportunity presented itself, I was never in the mood. Same with Braveheart, Schindler's List, Citizen Kane, Brokeback Mountain and Gone With The Wind. Just recently got around to seeing The Accidental Tourist.

    Goodfellas is a better film

    by RedBull_Werewolf

    I love raging bull but Goodfellas is just all around a better movie, more likeable characters, a better plot and a higher rewatchablity factor. Goodfellas may even be Scorsese's best film although theres several i've never seen

  • Dec. 5, 2010, 9:21 p.m. CST

    AFTER HOURS was as good as Scorcese ever got

    by caruso_stalker217

    Fact. <p>Well, not really.

  • Dec. 5, 2010, 9:30 p.m. CST

    Great pic!

    by Briestro

    I think Goodfellas is an overall better film as well. Raging Bull kicks ass, though, and easily among his best ones. B

  • Dec. 5, 2010, 8:21 p.m. CST

    RedBull_Werewolf, amen, brother

    by WriteForTheEdit

    I've seen most of Scorsese's films and I think Goodfellas is his best, and probably my favorite film of any genre. It's just a masterpiece. Raging Bull is amazing, but not quite Goodfellas.<P>(When I think the man who made both these films is the same man who made Shutter Island, I weep.)

    Why would you see The Accidental Tourist, but not see Braveheart, Schindler's List, Citizen Kane, Brokeback Mountain or Gone With The Wind? The Accidental Tourist? Really? Are you a Geena Davis fan or something?

    The Accidental Tourist...

    by phifty2 one of the most subtle and realistic love stories ever put on film. Davis won an Oscar for this right? She damn well should have. <p> Go Edward...

  • Dec. 5, 2010, 9:46 p.m. CST


    by phifty2

    Everything's subjective but I'll watch The Accidental Tourist over any of those films every time. It's one of those films where every time it's on I watch it to the end and wish it would start over once the credits roll.

  • Dec. 5, 2010, 11:17 p.m. CST

    Its the anti Rocky because

    by magnetoelectric

    Jake isn't remotely likeable at all.You feel no affinity or sympathy for him.In fact hes a complete douche. Its one of the most ambiguous endings ever btw. I always just feel indifferent by then, and in the back of my mind I'm thinking "fuck this guy , I'm glad hes at rock bottom"

    One of the most classic cinematic sequences ever. I get the love for Goodfellas, but Raging Bull is on another plane.
