Taxi Driver Reviews

Cole Smithey

[VIDEO ESSAY] So much of American popular culture, and modern Cinema's urban aesthetic, owes a debt to Martin Scorsese's groundbreaking fourth feature film that it is impossible to imagine a world without "Taxi Driver."

even more unnerving than his own psychotic behaviour is the easy way in which [Travis Bickle] is assimilated and integrated into the very society that he endangers.

Taxi Driver is a brilliant study of alienation, obsession, paranoia and perverse desire. There's an undeniable power and grittiness that very few films have come close to capturing since.

Melodramatic as it often is, the film is a riveting watch and De Niro provides a character study it is impossible to forget.

Radio Times

The bustling helter-skelter of Scorsese's Mean Streets gives way to a measured, chilly calm, and cinematographer Michael Chapman ensures the Big Apple glistens with barely concealed menace.

Bickle is complex, intriguing and never one-note.

Hitchcockian unease permeates the film, but so too does a Godardian use of space and a Bressonian focus on obsession heighten the mounting sense of dread.

Like Werner Herzog's Aguirre or Coppola's Apocalypse Now, Taxi Driver is auteurist psychodrama.

... a portrait in psychosis and dislocation with a protagonist whose racism and intolerance becomes his excuse to unleash his anger in a violent spree under the guise of heroism.

Writer Paul Schrader and director Martin Scorsese made names for themselves with this exquisitely crafted window into the contemporary male psyche. Taxi Driver seems aimless, taking as many u-turns and detours as a cabby does in the night. But it's

[Scorsese] seems to need scripts with well-designed humor and performers with the spirit of Ellen Burstyn to compensate for what seems to be a fundamentally depressed view of life and the belief that sobriety is the equivalent of seriousness.

Get in and take a nightmare ride on perhaps Scorsese's best picture, the story of Vietnam vet Travis Bickle's fight to win the woman of his dreams in the seedy Big Apple.
