Interesting through both its character development - De Niro as the taxi driver - and cinematography. Very slow at times, especially past the mid-point of the movie. Historically interesting as the movie that initiated John Hinkley's obesssion with Jodie Foster and eventually led him to attempt to assassinate President Reagan.

DeNiro, Shepard, Foster, and Keitel in a gritty story of lonliness and redemption. Martin Scorcese(also acts a small role),
in one of his earliest works as a director, captures perfectly the lonliness and despair of street life in NYC. Jodie Foster,
as a teen prostitute, is worthy of our sympathy. Harvey Keitel, as her pimp, is well cast for this role. Travis Bickell,
played by DeNiro is authentic as the spurned admirer of Cybil Shepard . Travis becomes the hero in the violent
conclusion of this story. A classic, timeless film....

Great film, of course, if a little dated (gun violence is so prevalent now that the younger generations are virtually inured to it). This film loses one star due only to its presentation on Amazon Prime. It's certainly not in high definition and the colors are even darker than Scorsese could have intended.

Movie was good, but the DVD case was broken so bad, and there was nothing wrong with the other DVD's I can only believe that it was broken when shipped.

Taxi Driver is not an easy film to watch, it's both gritty and confronting at times, and the depiction of New York as an "open sewer" is pretty depressing. That said it is an important film in the history of cinema, not the least because it serves as an interesting glimpse of society in the time in which in was made. De Niro's performance is a standout, but all the actors play their parts extremely well. It's hard to come away unaffected by Taxi Driver, and to me that's the mark of a great film. The Blu-ray edition looks great considering the age of this film, though it's obviously not as sharp as recent releases. This Blu-ray worked fine in my region B player.

Sorrsese got this one right. DeNiro plays the mysterious Taxi Driver. You know something bad is going to happen but you just don't know what. Great twist at the end leaves you scratching your head, I could not stop watching.

I can see why this is a classic. So different, so creepy. I like De Niro and I think this was one of his best performances.

Great movie. A true classic and big part of Americano. The music seemed a little contrived during some of the scenes. Could be just how films were done during that era.
