About the Movie
Considered among the best films of all time, Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver was nominated for Academy Awards® for Best Picture, Best Actor (Robert De Niro), Best Supporting Actress (Jodie Foster) and Best Original Score (Bernard Herrmann). Solitary, alienated, and emotionally scarred from Vietnam, taxi driver Travis Bickle (De Niro) works the night shift in Manhattan.Though the world around him is teeming with life, Travis is unable to connect with anyone. His date with Betsy (Cybill Shepherd), a beautiful campaign aide, fails when he takes her to a porno movie. He tries to save a 12-year-old prostitute, Iris (Foster), from her pimp, Sport (Harvey Keitel) - though it's unclear Iris wants to be saved. Travis's pent-up anger and misplaced loyalty finally boil over in a paroxysm of revenge and violence.
Personally I liked it
This movie is classed as a classic by a lot of people.
It is a great movie,with superb acting from deniro,however it does get a bit off track and slow at times.
When the action does start the films builds to a great scene followed by a calm ending with rolling jazz music...
Taxi Driver is one of the most well made films of all time.
This film is Robert De Niro finest piece of acting. He had the right script, the right director (Martin Scorsese), and the best supporting actress (then newcomer Jodie Foster). Add all that up and you get Taxi Driver, one of the greatest achievements of cinema.
