What is the movie Taxi Driver about?
We would like to start off this description of the Taxi Driver movie by saying that even if you are not a big fan of Robert De Niro, we are more than sure that you will love him instantly in this 1976 movie, when he was still much younger. In the movie, he is a Vietnam war veteran who drives a taxi during the night, but the thing is that he is constantly violent and can't help it. He is looking for some action all the time. Travis Bickle is his name and he is 26 in the movie. He is a typical lonely guy in NYC, looking for something to make his life even more interesting. The violent misanthropy is moving him and makes him feel alive all the time. It is very hard for him to fall asleep and that is one of the main reasons why he drives a taxi at night. It is not easy for him to bare the low life that lives at night and that is why he says in the movie that there will be a day when the rain will wash the scum off the streets! Betsy works as a Senator's campaign worker and he is trying to win her over many times, but his attempts were not very successful. He took her to the porn theater on the first date... Robert De Niro is brilliant in Taxi Driver, and so is Diahnne Abbott. Directed by Martin Scorsese, this movie brings a different story than we are used to, and that is one of the reasons why we loved watching this movie so much.

I thought of this movie as something brash and vulgar before watching it, but instead had a superbly laid-back and relaxing experience at cinema. The camera work is astonishing too, with such clear lines and easy angles.
Even though I know nothing about this film, I can still perceive its importance. Is it a story about a confused man coming to terms with being a straightforward taxi driver, or a man that's gradually going out of his mind, sliding through the sewer of life?
In case, just like me, you think you've seen this film before but really haven't, I am telling you – it is an absolutely excellent, rewarding film that casts aside pre-conceptions of backstreet trashiness and replaces them with a newly found respect for mankind, it's that powerful.
A 10/10 viewing experience without any shadow of a doubt.

Overall, this film represents an impressive and morally depressing piece of art that has its unique its place in cinematic history. The film greatly portrays the city and a man slipping into moral insanity. The performance is rather convincing and engaging and it shows how well to "do" modern madness and the effects of the moral void of parts of society. Scorsese directs as a master despite this being at an early stage in his career and De Niro is chillingly effective as he simply dominates the film in quiet moments and quotable moments alike. I rarely use phrases like "modern classic" because I think they are lazy but this is one film that certainly deserves such a label.

"Taxi Driver" was a big hit when it came out, both for the public and the critics. It won the Palme d'Or in Cannes, and served as a trend setter for many later films, like for instance Quentin Tarantino's and Abel Ferrara's. But even today, the original model seems difficult to emulate, probably because achieving a masterpiece is a rare thing, by definition.
