    I really think I have a ton in common with Travis Bickle. I hope that's not a bad thing. The only difference between him and me is that I'm not going to picture and actually kill people.

    Wow, never gets old this film. Watch it again and again each year and still has the magic. When a film is as complete as this, when all levels of film technology kick and voila you have a masterpiece. boy, that's something. Acting, photography, soundtrack, directing and the New York city at night, sleazy alive and raw. I think, still De Niro's best role ever.

    Taxi Driver is one of those films which compels everyone who has seen it to tell you how great it is. By the end of the film you will know why, and you will start to question why it took you so long to ever watch it.

    For a reason I still cant find today was my first viewing of Taxi Driver, despite being a massive fan of both De Niro and Scorsese. The acting performances from De Niro and…

    I'm supposed to love this movie, right? It's one of those classics that the whole world is supposed to go ga-ga over. Taxi Driver is a complicated character study. We are invited to enter the life of Travis Bickle, who is a certifiably insane cab driver in NYC. I get what they were trying to do with this story. Travis sees all the darkness and depravity in the city and desires to clean it up, and his mind comes up…

    My favorite Scorsese film. Robert DeNiro is fantastic. Such a thrilling journey into madness.

    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.
