Leon, by an ear.
This ear for Taxi Driver.
A couple of movies about a guy who goes on a killing spree to save a young girl. In Taxi Driver, Jodie Foster dresses like a hooker because she is a hooker. In The Professional, Natalie Portman dresses like a hooker because...? Anyway, Taxi Driver is gritty and dark without a bunch of sentimental, overly stylized, obnoxious, excessively cute bullshit (like The Professional and just about every other Luc Besson movie). Travis Bickle is a more interesting and believable character in every way than Léon, who is unfortunately stuck in a syrupy and artificial story.
This is tough but I'm gonna give it to Scorsese.
Leon is very good, But Taxi Driver is better for sure.
Leon even if Taxi Driver is good
Can't take Leon over classic DeNiro. I'm talkin to you...
