Taxi Driver is one of my favourite movies of all time. Great example of the Scorsese/Deniro Partnership! Deniro as Travis Bickle is one of the most well known movie characters.

One of the absolute best films of all time. A great masterpiece. Also Goodfellas, Raging bull, The Departed, The King of comedy and Mean streets are amazing and great films. There is some other good ones by Scorsese too like The Wolf of Wall street, Alice doesn't live here anymore, The Aviator, Casino, Shutter island and Cape fear but those aren't as great nor masterpieces.

Nothing happens in this movie, he just fails miserably at dating a girl, and sits in his taxi and ponders about new york and new Yorkers being scum, and kills some pimps at the end.

Scorsese's best film! Complex, psychological and includes a brilliant performance by DeNiro!

A psychological masterpiece about a loner on the edge. An engrossing character study of the first order. The methodical buildup, atmosphere and direction are flawless. De Niro gives a chilling all time great performance as Travis Bickle.

As days go by, this movie grows more and more relevant and continues to age like fine wine. Thank you Martin Scorsese and Paul Schrader, for telling the cautionary tale of a lonely man.
