Taxi Driver Review
It's been a long time since the cab driver who was a nutjob Travis Bickle (De Niro) first cleaned up the dirt off his street and the years since haven't diminished his ability to frighten and astonish.
Bickle's adventure, which sees him meet a beautiful blonde (Shepherd) and also save the life of a child hooker (an amazing Foster) and is filmmaking at its best and a tense, darkly humorous Paul Schrader's script, coupled to Scorsese's directorial fireworks, and supported by an unplugged De Niro performing at the highest level of his craft.
Bickle's yellow truck Bickle's yellow box New York (this is the side of Big Apple that gives Woody Allen nightmares) and Scorsese's backseat appearance, Bickle trying on guns as well as Bernard Herrman's dark soundtrack, and the OTT bloodbath towards the end the entire movie will make you sweat and sticks with you for a while like a fever.
