Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film The King of Comedy

This almost wound up being my favorite Scorcese but the ending felt too rushed, and there are a couple of scenes where one isn't sure if what's occurring on screen or one of Pupkin's delusions, which beaks the dramatic flow of the film. Still, at the very least it's a wonderful companion piece to Taxi Driver.
