[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.

What strikes you aren't just the iconic moments, but the little ones.

Portrait of a very disturbed man; NOT for kids.

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.

A masterful psychological study, the depth of which can only fully be appreciated on repeat viewings.

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.

Director Martin Scorsese's nightmare vision of Manhattan is important, impulsive work.

July 29, 2002

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

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.

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."

Perhaps the most formally ravishing-as well as the most morally and ideologically problematic-film ever directed by Martin Scorsese, the 1976 Taxi Driver remains a disturbing landmark for the kind of voluptuous doublethink it helped ratify.

Acclaimed for its gritty realism, but it has an equal amount of cinematic reverie.

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.
