** Of the conventional Hollywood {{Biopic}} (by showing the character WartsAndAll, avoiding HistoricalHeroUpgrade and refusing to sanitize the ugliness) and the sports movie genre (no, "success" in the Boxing Ring doesn't solve your personal problems or win you the love of your life) and the concept of redemption (it can sometimes take years for people to [[HeelRealization accept that they've done]] something wrong and even then they can't count on other people accepting that they have changed).
** More specifically, the movie shows the physical and psychological toll a career in sports involve, especially one like Boxing. All those punches on different parts of your body [[RealityEnsues will take a toll on you]], the effort it takes to maintain physique is such that on retirement, Jake [[FormerlyFit really lets himself go]]. Likewise, on retirement, [[AndThenWhat boxers have to rest on their winnings]] and income or find another means of income because the sporting career only last till you approach 40.
** It also shows that as much skill as boxing involves, sportsmen are nothing without the managers, coaches and institution that will get them their big goal, advice them on how to protect their money and generally prevent them from making fools of themselves. Jake [=LaMotta=] learns far too late about this by which point he has alienated all his friends and family.

* DeliberateValuesDissonance: Jake and Joey are just as racist and homophobic as you'd expect the average Italian-American from 1940's New York to be. Joey calls an African-American fighter a "moulie", while Jakes chides Joey by telling him he punches like he "takes it up the ass".
