My favorite movie. Brilliant
Never seen it
My girlfriend tells me I must
The more somebody tells me to watch it, the less interesting it is.
To see how great an actor he was and how awful he has become is just sad.
Anyone that has NOT seen Taxi Driver is a Communist IMO
Used to have this poster on my wall.
Jodie Foster was a little whore.
Forgot about that part.
Now I see why so many guys like it
quality 70s flick. lots of scenery and setting the scene instead of a million words a minute. i know,
anyway, movie was based on this guy Arthur Bremer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_Bremer
Deniro was great in that
Bang the drum slowly was a low point
in the original script, Travis was a lot more racist... so much so that Scorsese had to tone it down and thats why he has Harvey Kietel as a white pimp.
he's so hot i'd fuck his corpse
Taxi Driver also captured the real shithole NYC that's gone now.....
He raised a bar he could never repeat after Good Fellas, from Mean Streets on.. after GoodFellas he became a parody of himself.
I'll give him a pass for Max Cady though....
scorsese is a god
Funny that Scorsese played the racist cab rider.
