i know this film is considered to be one of the greats, and i agree that it tells a thrilling and compelling story about travis bickle, yet its still not a film i could find myself falling in love with. certainly another great from scorsese and a masterful performance from de niro, just not my cup of tea.
I'm not sure if I'll ever be able to put into words the effect this film had on me. I fell so deeply and easily in love with the characters, story and setting that I can't say much else about it.
So much of this film is an experience and so much of it was reflected in myself. I'm not sure how a film about two bisexual boys in Northern Italy in the summer of 1983 got to my core…
