Raging Bull - Definitive Edition [DVD]
2.  Raging Bull - Definitive Edition [DVD] DVD ~ Robert De Niro

4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (86 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

The King of Comedy [DVD] [1982]
3.  The King of Comedy [DVD] [1982] DVD ~ Robert De Niro
The list author says:
  "once infamously known as the flop of the year. now this appers to be showing the danger of celebrity culture. Jerry Lewis as Jerry Langford stole the show and makes it superior to me"

4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (32 customer reviews)

The Last Waltz [1978] [DVD]
4.  The Last Waltz [1978] [DVD] DVD ~ The Band

Casino (2 Disc Special Edition) [DVD]
6.  Casino (2 Disc Special Edition) [DVD] DVD ~ Robert De Niro
