This review is from: Taxi Driver [DVD]   (DVD)
Stunning debut from De Niro.
This film is a must watch / own.
It's a great portrayal of loneliness and isolation and the desperate steps some people will take to be a 'somebody'. The depths of Travis Bickles' isolation can be felt in his pursuit of the ice cold beauty portrayed by Cybill Sheppard and escalates into violence when he attempts and fails to assassinate a politician then later tries to protect a young prostitute (Jodie Foster) from her outwardly engaging yet sinister (I thought) pimp.
A compelling film. Initially I didn't think I'd like it. But I was wrong. Brilliant.

Amazing film - certainly not Bob De Niro's 'debut' though!
