Reviews

From Amazon.co.uk

Taxi Driver is the definitive cinematic portrait of loneliness and alienation manifested as violence. It is as if director Martin Scorsese and screenwriter Paul Schrader had tapped into precisely the same source of psychological inspiration ("I just knew I had to make this film", Scorsese would later say), combined with a perfectly timed post-Watergate expression of personal, political and societal anxiety. Robert De Niro, as the tortured, ex-Marine cab driver Travis Bickle, made movie history with his chilling performance as one of the most memorably intense and vividly realised characters ever committed to film. Bickle is a self-appointed vigilante who views his urban beat as an intolerable cesspool of blighted humanity. He plays guardian angel for a young prostitute (Jodie Foster), but not without violently devastating consequences. This masterpiece, which is not for all tastes, is sure to horrify some viewers, but few could deny the film's lasting power and importance. --Jeff Shannon

Synopsis

Paul Schrader's gritty screenplay depicts the ever-deepening alienation of Vietnam Veteran Travis Bickle (Robert De Niro in a tour-de-force performance), a psychotic cab driver who obsessively cruises the mean streets of Manhattan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Career Making Performance and Film 23 Oct 2006
Format:DVD
This the film that really nailed it for Scorcese and DeNiro. Jodi Foster is amazing, especially as she was just at the stage of her career when she was making the transition to more grown-up fare. There is also a sterling support cast including a brilliant "Peter Boyle" as the Wizard and Harvey Keitel in the part of the pimp which he had Scorcese build up for him. The score from an ailing Bernard Harman is among the best and most disquieting of his work (sadly his last score he died on the day the recording was completed). The dvd extras are the kind I really like, quality rather than quantity. I mean who needs an extra dvd of stuff most probably taken from the media hand-outs given to the press? What you have hear is a really good length (70 min) making of with all the main movers and shakers taking part; Scorcese, DeNiro, Shepherd, Keitel, Shraeder. The only thing I'm slightly dissapointed about is that there is no mention of the rumoured animosity between DeNiro and Shepherd. Hell, maybe they've put the past behind them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Are you looking at my Bluray review? 25 Jun 2011
By DeeJay
Format:Blu-ray
Well you must be looking at my Bluray review... Ok, ok, on with the review.

As with my Apocalypse Now review I think it would be a bit of a waste to review the Taxi Driver movie itself. It's an iconic classic and if your reading this you'll no doubt just want to know if this bluray is worth the upgrade from the DVD, well it is, and here is why.

First impressions weren't good, they left in the old Columbia Pictures logo at the start of the film which looked horrendous, the credits weren't the best - although that's down to the trappings of time rather than anything else, and the first scene of Travis is murky, soft and hazy, but then the camera angle changes and *bang* a fine looking transfer from then on, and the best Taxi Driver has ever looked.

I will sum up the overall picture quality with one scene. Remember when Travis (Deniro) is in the Cafe and he drops a tablet into a glass of water that starts to fizz and he zones out just staring at it? Well, for years my VHS and DVD purchases just showed a fizzing glass of water, but in the Bluray release I can now see that the glass has a bug in it. Now, whether Travis can identify with this bug who is helplessly thrown around with the current, or they just didn't bother to clean the glass before shooting I don't know, but this level of detail is what the format is about. You can certainly see the benefit from the 4k digital restoration and remaster under Cinematographer Michael Chapman and Martin Scorsese. Taxi Driver looks great and is up there with the best classic movie Bluray releases. It still looks like a film from 1976, but it looks like it was released yesterday.

4.0 out of 5 stars Speaks to the loneliness 27 April 2013
By Tando
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film is a masterclass of writing, acting, and directing. Paul Schrader admits to being a bit like Travis when he wrote this, and so he empathised with the loneliness and the contradictions of a personality who wants love but when he gets a date, takes her to a porno theatre to show her what a loser he is. And who writes in his diary about the importance of getting healthy and then sits staring at a tv popping pills and eating bread and cereals laced with whiskey. He is a social misfit, a reject determined to remain rejected, because to his subconscious mind this is what he deserves, no matter what he writes and says. I like that the script doesnt explain why he is this way, but just shows the behaviour and allows our imagination to fill in the gaps. De Niro prepared by driving a taxi and he IS the character more than in any other movie he made.
The only scenes that i don't quite believe are those between Travis and Betsy, played by Cybill Shepherd. Here the writing is not so realistic, as i don't believe she would go out with a guy like him, not even for a coffee, and when he tells her he feels there is a strong connection between them, and asks if she feels the same, she replies "I wouldnt be here if i didn't." That is the worst line in the whole movie, but is taken from many ad-libbed versions of scenes between the two actors, who never look comfortable together. That aside, Taxi Driver spoke to the souls of thousands of lonely outsiders, rejects, so called losers in life, but in reality it is the life itself that is fundamentally unnatural for humans to live in, being a slave-like existence with little or no affection or love.Travis reacts in a natural way to this unnatural city existence,and so for me he is normal, while all the people who put forward a fake front of self control and enjoyment in place of the turmoil they should be exhibiting, it is they who are the unnatural ones. Scorcese's best film and De Niro's best acting.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest films of all time 15 Dec 2006
Format:DVD
My mum lent me this film when I was bored one day, I hadn't seen it before. I was adamante of watching a film made in the 70's (a silly but corrected mistake)but it blew me away on so many levels. Martin Scorsece's portrayal of an ex-Vietnam soldier trying to adjust to every day life is superb. He is throwing into a society that completely sickens him, he suffers from insomnia and can't sleep so he becomes a Taxi Driver. The brilliant thing about this movie is that you can see the mental decomposition of Travis Bickle's character through a series of events. Through I believe no fault of his own Travis messes up a possible relationship with Betsy. (Cybill Shephard) He find's something to live for through Iris(Jodie Foster)a 13 year old prostitute. You understand why he does what he does at the end of the film. At some point in everyone's life we get really lonely, Travis Bickle is going through this stage, and you recognise it instantly. I have to admit the most chilling thing about Travis Bickkle's character is that he pauses during conversations! Martin Scorcese's use of cinematography and his filming style in this film is superb! I dont' want to go on, PLEASE WATCH THIS FILM, YOU WON'T REGRET IT!
