    There was a review here, but one day a real rain came and washed it all clean.

    Nah in all seriousness, I toyed with writing something but then I realised it's all been said. No one really needs to see another review about this. It's a classic that bears repeated viewing.

    Actually, here's something novel and personal to me to say about this; the sadly all too platonic relationship between Albert Brooks and the divine Cybill Shepherd puts me in…

    I feel icky… As great as this movie is, you feel a tremendous need to take a bath afterwards. I had seen this film before, but I somehow forgot how dark a voyage that director, Martin Scorsese, takes you on. This movie, on all levels, deserves to be on this AFI list, but you can't just recommend this film to anybody because of the tough subject matter that is dealt with. Thank goodness there is so much technical pedigree to…

    The 1970s has often been called the Second Golden Age of Hollywood, in part because it was a period where fresh, innovative and new films came onto the scene. Films like Jaws, Star Wars, The Godfather and Godfather Part II, A Clockwork Orange, and The Exorcist caused controversy, won praise, and still remain cinematic classics to this day.

    Then there were burgeoning talents such as Martin Scorsese and Paul Schrader, the dynamic duo who created this grimy, dark and unidealized…

    This masterpiece which sent shock-waves across cinemas, with brilliant direction from Martin Scorsese, that changed the very theme of the films previously made, is as thrilling as ever. Robert DeNiro is a force of storm behind the powerful film like Taxi Driver.

    Loved the cinematography work and the sound-editing. Loved the theme of the film so much. Scorsese has shown the lethal outcome of loneliness of God's Man.

    Taxi Driver is an highly impressionistic character portrayal about a lonely Taxi Driver, which doesn't really fit in to the community.

    It takes on many themes, such as effects of loneliness and exclusion, mistreating and manipulation as well as utilization of young girls, it brings up self-worth, and a lot more. It got many great social commentaries - as in the way it portrays capitalism at its grossest with the upcoming president, and generally how fucked up the community is,…

    With an electrifying lead from De Niro, beautiful cinematography, a leisurely developed final act with a powerful climax and a nearly flawless character study, Taxi Driver is incredibly immersive. Travis Bickley is developed perfectly with gritty diary-narration that vivifies and unravels his corroded mind, and everyone turns in splendid performances. The score is a little overused, but that's merely a non-existent nitpick for Taxi Driver, an involving, occasionally witty but horrific tale of a disturbed individuals perceived duty to be the "real rain" that wipes and washes scum off the street.

    Quite how people actually BELIEVE those theories about the end I don't know. They're fun, but also go against the grain of the film.
