When audience members look at films they want to put reality on the shelf and enjoy a well written movie Martin Scorsese has always captivated and fascinated his audience members for many years His types of movies tend to have a male leads while the female characters are sometimes not as developed or have an integral part to the plot itself In Raging Bull and in The Age of Innocence we see two representations of male characters with very different but yet similar issues These two movies are very different on the surface because both take place in two separate time periods One movie is about a famous boxer while the other follows a New York socialite when people where divided into classes based on how much money they earned Director Martin Scorsese does a great job in controlling the flow of information in this movie The beginning of this scene shows the main character Jake La Motta and his brother Joey sitting around a diner table We start to hear a very strange dialogue between Jake and hes telling his brother to hit him as hard as he can to show that he can take it He is doing this to show how he can beat anyone in the ring and prove his manhood He is also trying to show his brother how he can take punches without feeling much pain His brother complies with his request and we have the camera going from brother to brother showing him being punched and his brother receiving each violent blow to the face This whole scene follows the classical continuity rule of editing which talks about match on action This is done when Joey punches his brother and in the next shot we see his fist continuing that motion in a very smooth cut We then see them sitting opposite one another which gives the shot and reverse shot technique We see behind both shoulders
