brilliant film...the portrait of a lonely disenfranchised member of society who has been cast aside because of his failure to conform to the ideals that have swept over his community...Robert Deniro stars as Travis Bickle, a Vietnam Veteran suffering from post traumatic stress disorder, the movie delves into his psyche which becomes more and more fatigued with each passing day, encountering the lowest rung of society. The movie climaxes in a crescendo of blood and violence in which Trais brings about a proverbial "rain" in which to cleanse the city of the scum who have ruined it. This movie has been blamed for many violent acts that have been committed in America, in the same way that now-a-days people probably would blame Travis for blowing away a bunch of scumbags including a pimp and a john, but infact, just as Travis ultimately earned commendation, so should this film, it can not be believed that this movie was ever the inspiration for any incouragable acts, but rather the warning light that such things will go on if we as a society continue to allow the scum of the earth to reign supreme and shit on all that does not conform to it's slimy ways...
Taxi driver is a misunderstood epic...a legend in filmmaking and possibly one of the top 10 greatest movies ever made...

One of the best movies of all time starring Robert De Niro. De Niro plays a psychotic taxi driver named Travis Bickle who doesn't sleep much and is sick of the scum of the city. In order to clean the scum of the society and save a teenage prostitute, he uses violence as the way to do it.
Taxi Driver should have won the oscar for the Best Picture Award in 1976 over Rocky.

Fucking masterpiece of a film.
Stars Robert De Niro as Travis Bickle, an unstable vietname veteran who hates the scum of the society he is surrounded by.

The best film of all time. Travis Bickle is the true definition of a hero.
He goes to a scummy brothel with his 44.magnum and blows away all the scum to save one little girl. Very admirable and a timeless classic.
Taxi Driver fucking rocks.

Taxi Driver is an all time classic film from the 1970s, starring Robert De Niro and a whole rememberable line up.

De niro portrays one Travis Bickle - a pyschotic, porn obsessed insomniac who is a recently discharged marine veteran from vietnam.

The story follows travis as he meets a beautiful young women named Betsy, and then becoming obsessed in saving a young 12 year old prostitute (Foster) from her pimp, and escaping her life of drugs, gangsters and murderers. This is essentially Travis' way of cleaning up the mean streets of New York City - and oh my does he do it in style. This must be watched if your over 18!
Person #1 'Hey, ive just seen Taxi Driver 33 years late'

Person #2 'Cool, what did the kids think of it?'

Person #1 'The kids, you must be joking!'
