yes, the protagonist in "rocky" had his share of struggles and got that "L" in the end, but still, theres an undeniable aura of escapism to it... it just takes your hand and brings you to a place where you'd feel better... away from the drudgery of everyday life albeit momentarily....
raging bull keeps you fvckin' grounded and instead of taking your hand towards escapism, slaps you hard with an array of human follies straight out of what freud calls "id" embedded in the human psyche...
theres no "superior" film between the two IMO... both work quite well depending on one's mood...
just my 2 cents...
