"Taxi Driver", directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Robert DeNiro, is a stunner as we follow around a New York cab driver and his encounters with the sleazy people and the upright people. Travis Bickle is a bit weird but ultimately ok as he ends up killing some goons toward the end. He gets attracted to some political people including Cybill Shepherd who is with a political campaign. Director Martin Scorsese was on his home turf of New York as he tells the Travis Bickle story with effective flair for this loner only wants to be understood.
A Masterpiece Ahead Of Its Time
- DON RILEY
This is one of the finest studies of loneliness and isolation on film. Here its in a Great Metropolis to contrast Kubrick's THE SHINING which is in seclusion. Unfortunately Robert De Niro's brilliant performance, probably the finest of his career. Was not followed up by a whole lot, he became a "gun for hire' an entrepreneur and as Marlon Brando defined actors " business men searching for a contract". This film is a masterpiece which includes De Niro in one of the best Acting jobs, I've ever witnessed and a swirling, poetic, conglomerate with a defining message, "I'm God's Lonely Man".
Scorsese's nightmarish, claustrophobic masterpiece. A taxi driver in New York City is repulsed by the ugliness of his city, then consumed by it an a mission to save an under-age prostitute. De Niro is intense and compelling as Travis Bickle, garnering an Oscar nomination, also nominated was a young Foster for her supporting work. Scorsese and screenwriter Schaeffer force viewers to see the decaying city from Bickle's unpredictable mind, and they don't let viewers leave easily, always questioning the moral compass. A tense, unforgettable character study of a frustrated man. I give it a 5/5.
