Taxi Driver

Taxi Driver ★★★★★

Post-war trauma consumes one man. He has seen many things and has become a tortured soul. His beliefs have changed since then and now he clearly sees the flaws in our world. He wants to contain himself, so he becomes a driver of the city. He sees the filth roaming down the streets; he is disgusted. He is motivated. He has to act. He has to be a hero. He wants to stop the madness, when he is the madness. His shining light is a child prostitute. He must save her. He needs to stop her from going down a path like the rest of the filth. An attempt is diminished, yet a showdown is succeeded. He lies there. Has he become what he has sorely hated? No. In his mind, he is the hero. But is there any hero?
