Iconic and bizarrely captivating. A unique and well-made film. (First and only viewing - In my mid-twenties)

With an interesting character at its centre, 'Taxi Driver' manages to overcome its flaws along with the help of some excellent direction, beautiful cinematography and a fantastic lead performance from De Niro.

Loneliness is a subject that has been explored in film, but not like this nor will it ever again. Robert De Niro creates a multi-layered performance where the audience tries to sympathize with a man driven deeply into madness by loneliness. It's crafted in such a passionate way by both De Niro and Scorsese that it strikes a nerve with its brutal realism yet there are times when it has a fantastical feel to it, but it is just a feeling and it is special. But what will leave an impression on you is the moody score and an ending that seals the fact that it is a masterpiece.

It's still one of the most astonishing films about the seedy underbelly of urban life, which depicts the city of New York as ugly, night and day, but never loses sight of its character study, that's always pessimistic in its societal observations.

Robert De Niro strikes again with another classic performance, the story by Paul Schrader was brilliant, Albert brooks also gave a short and good performance, but it is not as good as The Godfather

Taxi Driver is a masterpiece. Taxi Driver is disturbing and is filled with loneliness and violence. De Niro's performance as Travis Bickle is one of the best performances of all time. It has amazing cinematography and a great score. The ending of this movie is incredible and is open to your interpretation. This film is very powerful. One of the greatest character studies of all time. Scorsese and De Niro created one of the most iconic characters of all time in Travis Bickle.

Desolate, opaque and brutal, brings out the kind of disturbed, perverse America that is hidden, waiting to be unleashed.

Scorsese at his most ambitious. Perhaps one of the few "serious" Oscar-nominated films that dares to be literature; dares to be analyzed objectively, and not heavy-handedly making a point. The amorality, tragic objectivity does make it a cold almost emotionally vacant film, but with so many iconic alpha-male moments it has shoved its way into Hollywood culture.

Scorsese's direction combined with De Niro's performance cause a masterpiece exploring the seediness of 1970s New York to be created.
July 4, 2017
Scorcese creates one of the most unique and interesting characters in cinema history: Travis Bickle, the Taxi Driver, whose perspective of the world around him is as disturbing as it is fascinating.

One of the best films ever made.

No matter what your favorite Robert De Niro or Martin Scorsese actually is, Taxi Driver continues to fill film conversations to this day, remaining relevant while solidifying its place as a classic.

Travis Bickle (Rodert De Niro) is easily one of the creepiest and most awkward protagonists in movie history. Watching De Niro's interactions with the other characters in this movie is both mesmerizing and terrifying, and it had me genuinely nervous at times (particulalry his interactions with the characters portrayed by Albert Brooks and Cybill Shepherd). The only problem I have with this movie was the last scene, which was far too unrealistic. Regardless, this movie is a must-see for all true movie buffs.

The film of the most famous New York taxi driver in film directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Robert De Niro, Jodie Foester and Harvey Keitel when they were sooo young! It is a good story and a jewel of film history!

"I think someone should just take this city and just... just flush it down the fuckin' toilet" De Niro's performance is amazing, and really puts the edge on this dark film.

Amazing performance by Robert De Niro and Jodie Foster, the movie has a confused lonely feeling that really sets the mood it needs to set for the story to be told how it needed to be told. Excellent Scorsese movie.

The film has never looked better than the 40th anniversary blu-ray.
