The 'Taxi Driver' is one of the movies that are unforgettable and this is due to unique interpretations of the actors (especially Robert De Niro and Jodie Foster, who won her first Oscar nomination for 'B ACTRESS once in the 13's) but also in fact that so much identified with the protagonist, who experiences the situations facing them. An injustice by an underclass movie director's (Martin Scorces... read more

I have to agree with the top most voted review on this film, so let me say that again: The TOP voted.

This film is way overrated. Almost everything says this film is powerful, intense, shocking...well, I don't think so or believe so. Instead, I think it's really overrated and definitely in some parts boring. And it also really doesn't help that Deniro/Scorsese fans keep calling this... read more

Description: A mentally unstable Vietnam war veteran works as a night-time taxi driver in New York City where the perceived decadence and sleaze feeds his urge for violent action. Shot during a New York summer heat wave and garbage strike, Taxi Driver got into trouble with the MPAA for its violence. Scorsese desaturated the color in the final shoot-out and got an R, and Taxi Driver surprised its unenthusiastic studio by becoming a box-office hit. Released in the Bicentennial year, after Vietnam, Watergate, and attention-getting attempts on President Ford's life, Taxi Driver's intense portrait of a man and a society unhinged spoke resonantly ...

“Taxi Driver es reconocida y recordada en nuestros días por su genial y tan memorable dirección,y claro que lo entiendo,los usos de los planos y los colores para transmitir todo lo que se intenta en la película es algo que roza lo impecable. Ya que,al querer mostrar la parte más podrida de la sociedad norteamericana,el uso de dichos recursos ayudan a dar imágenes precisas y representativas para cumplir con dicho fin,en ese sentido,Scorsese se ha mantenido bastante fresco incluso hasta el día de hoy. Los personajes,sirven en cierta medida para contribuir a la crítica social a la que se está intentando llegar. Por ejemplo: Iris nos ayuda a ver lo degenerado que se ha vuelto el pueblo estadounidense al ser esta misma una prostituta con 12 años,y a la vez el deseo de Travis de dejar li” read more

“Entre el repertorio de obras mas icónicas de la cinematografía, Taxi Driver figura entre las mas importantes. No solo inspiró un montón de obras con temáticas similares, ayudó a Scorsese a hacerse un nombre que años después lo consagraria en la historia del cine, ayudó al desarrollo del neo-noir tanto narrativa como estéticamente, sino que inclusive llegó a inspirar actos de la vida real y hasta propias subculturas y la verdad, no es muy difícil el ver porque. La historia de un hombre en busca de propósito es algo con lo que muchos jóvenes pueden fácilmente sentirse identificados, añadido a los temas principales de la cinta siendo estos el aislamiento y la soledad, hacen un atractivo fuerte, especialmente en estos tiempos.

La trama gira en torno a Travis Bickle, ” read more

"5.5. 2020 An ex-marine Travis Bickle becomes a taxi driver but all the disappointments in his life and the harsh reality of a big city only make him more depressed and deluded. Scorsese's masterpiece is an accurate depiction of a disturbed individual and the society around him. Scorsese focuses on exactly the right issues: gun culture, obsession with violence, prostitution, depression, jealousy, and mental disorders are all part of the same big problem."

" Notes: In my opinion, it was definitely the first masterpiece produced by Martin Scorsese and Robert de Niro. I mean, 3 years before, they had already made 'Mean Streets' together and it was already a real breakthrough for both of them but it is with this movie that they really started to change cinema as an Art and they will keep doing it, at least twice again with 'Raging Bull' and 'Goodfellas'.
