Martin Scorsese États-Unis, 1976

smndvdcl's rating of the film Taxi Driver

A cautionary tale that transformed contemporary cinema. Travis Bickle is the ultimate disturbed protagonist. His warped, bigoted worldview colours his societal interactions in a volatile fashion. It plays on the mind long after a viewing; symbolic of a loner's psychological descent as his ideological posturing turns sour. When his villainies are confused by redeeming qualities, it makes it all the more unsettling.
