A boxer is an abusive jackass.

It has some redeeming value, a handful of nice scenes. 90% of the movie is just tedious, though. He's a jackass, then he does some boxing, then he's a jackass some more, wash, rinse, repeat. Oh, except that in the second half of the movie there's no more boxing. I have no idea why this guy is the jackass he is; he just starts that way and keeps going without change or break though the whole movie. I have even less idea why Scorsese thinks we should care about his life.
