    How I define/rate movies is typically by two factors. How entertaining and/or informative they are. Hopefully, they are both.
    Taxi Driver falls into a third category, of quality acting, compelling story, great cinematography, yet completely void of the first two factors. Taxi Driver is a convincing movie that should be experienced by all. It allows you to see and feel the destructive path Travis Bickle is taking. How he interacts with those around him and his fight with internal demons.…

    There isn’t much else that can be said about “Taxi Driver”. Watching the new 4k re-mastered Blu-ray was a real treat. Set in the sleaziest, grimiest, filthiest streets of 1970s New York City, Robert Deniro’s “Travis Bickle” character is a frightening portrayal of a mentally ill Vietnam war veteran trying to survive the urban jungle. Employed as a night shift cab driver, the audience gets to experience the wet, neon draped Manhattan streets through his eyes. Prostitutes, pimps, and drug…

    Still not feeling the film. The dim and bokeh-heavy shots of New York, coupled with the tender jazz soundtrack really set the mood, and Robert De Niro's performance is on-point, but in all honesty I just really don't give a shit about him or any other character. The objective qualities are all there and it's a well-executed film but on a personal and emotional level I just cannot grasp its constantly mentioned greatness.

    Guess you can't love everything.

    An interesting topic to be extracted from this film is the intense need for Bickle to have full control over Betsy and Iris. While he proclaims he is "done" with the "filth" and seeks to clean up the streets of New York City, DeNiro's character really just displays an intense desire to get rid of the obstacles in his way of the women he fixates on. From the beginning of both of Bickle's relationships with these ladies, there is a…

    El éxito de Taxi Driver no es ni el peinado mohawk ni la cara de Travis Bickle mientras aplaude.

    El éxito de Taxi Driver es la constatación de que puedes encontrar a un subproducto de la sociedad como Travis Bickle en cualquier ciudad contemporánea y que la mayoría (si no todos) de los espectadores de esta peli estarán de acuerdo en algún momento con él.

    Today, on the eve of the Oscar ceremony, I decided to cross off a big hole on my unwatched list by taking in one of the biggest snubs they ever did in Taxi Driver. There's been so much written about the film by now that I don't know if anyone can really add anything to it, other than joining in the choir of praises that the film has received since its premiere in 1976. Absolutely terrific from top to bottom,…

    An absolute classic. Bernard Hermann writes his last, and one of his best, scores for the film that shows just how powerful the trio of Schrader, De Niro and Scorcese can be.
    Can't watch it enough.

    Just finished this with my Film Studies students. You would think with all the violence and sex these kids are exposed to that a movie like TAXI DRIVER would seem quaint or dated to a group of teenagers. But absolutely not! TAXI DRIVER played like gangbusters. Travis Bickle's descent into vigilante madness perplexed, shocked, and ultimately thrilled them.

    After we finished the movie, I re-directed them to the scene in which the pimp, Sport (Harvey Keitel), seduces the 13-year old…

    When you hear the name Travis Bickle, you might think of the infamous quotes that have been repeated or referenced for decades. You may recall the wardrobe choices Bickle makes throughout the film as well as the iconic transformation of his hair, the image of DeNiro with a mohawk and an eerie smile across his face ingrained into your movie loving soul. Last night I sat down and experienced Taxi Driver through a fresh set of eyes, having gone far…

    Its a good movie, but perhaps looked at slightly less critical due to kudos.
