this movie is a 10/10 its a CLASSIC and can't be rated anything less if rated accurately!
A unique movie :) great !
My first time watching this .. I thought Robert De Niro played the part perfectly...
Though the french movie taxi driver was the first 1,look like i was wrong.Cant believe i missed a masterpiece like this.
Masterpiece portrayal of urban alienation and how this can impact mental health that is perhaps even more relevant 40 years on in our so called 'connected' World.
One of Hollywoods most overlooked classic/cult films - no Oscars although it received 4 nominations.
Great to find it on Solar
Great Film. Instant Classic. De Niro at his best! 10/10
A brilliant portrayal of a young mans decent into madness after being mentally corrupted by modern society. The best of the Scorsese/De Niro collaborations. 10/10

That saxaphone lick that plays while hes driving is haunting and the lack of dialouge is great. I think the movie Drive takes alot of cues from this one.

Now this is a classic! Such a powerful movie, the 'you talking to me' scene alone is a huge part of movie history. Watching a lowly cab driver with serious social issues becoming a self trained vigilante assassin never gets old.


De Niro at his absolute best. 10/10

Thoughtful and dark. The inner-personal conflict of Travis Bickle is not totally comprehensible, but dangerously accessible. His sort of arrogant, voluntary exile from society is tremendously unsettling. Bickle is one of the most astonishing characters in film, and fearlessly embodied by Robert De Niro. The script is brilliantly structured, appearing at times as just a culmination of loosely related scenes, but each is in fact a dramatic step towards Bickle's martyrdom. Scorsese's directing is more violent and ugly than it's ever been, complimenting the anti-hero. The narration is weighty and disturbing, sometimes funny, much like the score transitioning from daunting, dramatic orchestration to soft jazz without missing a beat. It's an impressive achievement in cinematic art with a great cast and a haunting message. Gets better every time.
