Martin Scorsese scores easy in this masterful masterpiece!...
Just off the top of my head, this is probably thee best film of 1976, a very strong year for cinema (sorry Clint, 'Outlaw Josey Wales')...

🚕 If you think the purpose of movies is to bring about the Moral Uplift of the audience, and to have a likable hero to set a good example, then you probably won't like this one.

A taxi driver's undeveloped rescuer personality portrayed by young Robert DeNiro wherein he possibly couldn't identify what he was feeling much less vocalize it. Was he like this before he went to war? Violence was boiling just under the…Read moreRead more of this comment

I checked this out to see an early film with Harvey Keitel, and much to my surprise it was a DiNiro lead. When I seen the ending I wasn't surprised it was a Scorsese film. Jodie Foster was just a kid. Did not watch 2nd disc.

One of Martin Scorsese's earlier movies. This movie follows the life of a Vietnam veteran turned taxi driver as he copes with his anger, hatred and loneliness in 70s New York. The plot is relatively heavy, even for a Scorsese movie,…Read moreRead more of this comment

Always feel that Martin S.' work are over rated. Finally made up my mind to watch this acclaimed film hoping to prove that I had been wrong. Well, I was right all along. The descriptions in the Taxi drivers stories in the 2nd disc are more…Read moreRead more of this comment
I don't get it. I really-really don't. (And, I guess I never will)
Why does this dreary, dead-end movie from the dreary, dead-end 1970's seem to rate so high with so many people? I can't, for the life of me, see how these people would…Read moreRead more of this comment

Directed by Martin Scorsese in 1976, this American neo-noir psychological thriller delves into the mental images surrounding Travis Bickle, a 26-year-old honorably discharged, lonely and depressed U.S. Marine living in isolation in New…Read moreRead more of this comment

A great movie with a fantastic performance by Robert De Niro- one of the best American films of the 20th Century. This film will be jarring to those raised on superhero pap and other mindless movies currently in vogue.
It's funny how…Read moreRead more of this comment

To people who've never seen this movie, but are curious about the controversy:
1. It is not a happily-ever-after story.
2. You won't laugh a lot. You won't likely get excited, either. No pulse-pounding suspense.
3. It is difficult to…Read moreRead more of this comment

the great Bernard Herrmann is oppressive on this film. the music is so strong it calls attention to itself. how Jodie foster could have allowed herself to be so objectified(considering what she has since come to represent), is a mystery…Read moreRead more of this comment

A very interesting peek behind the curtain of what it looks like to be alone in society. Travis Bickle was as dirty as the people he looked down on, and couldn't get a grip on his life, one minute a monster, the next a hero. A real slow…Read moreRead more of this comment

The blend of Schrader's script, Scorsese's direction and De Niro's performance is both riveting and unnerving. A film that will stay with you forever.

An absolute classic- the movie captures the post Vietnam malaise of American society in a perfect slice of nightmarish alienation and horror. Winner of the Palme D'Or at the 1976 Cannes Film Festival. A must see for intelligent and acute…Read moreRead more of this comment

Just like other such super-popular movies as Blade Runner and Star Wars, Taxi Driver is clearly yet another one of those mystifying movies that one, apparently, isn't allowed to dislike (and, especially, not allowed to publicly voice a…Read moreRead more of this comment

This is absolutely the Emperor's New Clothes of movies. If you don't like it, it's because you aren't smart enough, of hip enough, or whatever. Well, I thought it was lousy when I saw it in the '70s, and it hasn't improved with age. …Read moreRead more of this comment
