Taxi Driver

Taxi Driver ★★★★½

Taxi Driver is a hypnotic classic and I think everyone should watch it, at least once in their lives. It portrays loneliness, existentialism and mental illness in the wildest and realest way.

Scorsese, once again, kept me interested for the whole runtime. I empathized a lot with the character of Travis, I rooted for him and I genuinely cared for him, at all times.

The dialogue felt real and the interactions were believable. I particularly enjoyed the tumultuous camera work and the excellent editing. Every single scene was necessary.

The thing about Taxi Driver is, it doesn’t really have a story. The main character is the story, and we get to live life and experience everything from his point of view.

“You talkin' to me?”
