Review of Taxi Driver (1976)

One of the 'all time greats' it would seem. Interesting, it seems a great from the past has to contain groundbreaking violence (which wouldn't shock anyone in todays desensitized society) and lots of lingering silent shots which can potentially bore the less-interested cinema fan.

The film follows a generic post-Nam veteran psychopath around the streets. He lives his daily life as a taxi-driver and all the while he harbours dreams of cleaning up the scum that litters the pavement. His feeling of absolute powerlessness eventually pushes him to buy some guns and in the middle of it all he flies off the rails, attempts to assassinate a local parliamentarian and eventually decides to eradicate a band of pimps who oversee the soliciting of a 12 year old girl (after failing to persuade her to leave her job and go back to school...the legal way). It's an alright film, I can see the potential in it and it's well made, directed and has good dialogue and all, but I was bored in places.
