Fresh: Bickle is complex, intriguing and never one-note.
- Dave Calhoun, Time Out, Tuesday, May 10, 2011
De Niro so diverse, what a concept. Update: Captivating madness.

The ultimate Martin Scorsese classic. A raw and gritty crime film about a mentally unstable Vietnam veteran who puts it in his mind that he should rescue a teenage prostitute played by Jodie Foster. Taxi Driver is one of Martin Scorsese's very best films, and it remains one of his most disturbing and chilling. Robert De Niro gives a stunning performance as Travis Bickle, one of cinemas greatest antiheroes. The films overall tone is raw, gritty and nasty. It does a terrific job at portraying the sleazy streets of Manhattan. Taxi Driver is a stunning achievement in film. This is one of Martin Scorsese's best films, and is one of my favorites too. The cast that acts alongside De Niro is well chosen and they all deliver something memorable on screen. Scorsese does a masterful job at portraying the crime riddled streets of New York. It's surprising to me that this was just the beginning of what was yet to come. Sure, Scorsese was making films since the end of the 1950's, but with Taxi Driver he truly mastered his skills and became more than just a director. This film paved the way for his later masterpieces, such as Raging Bull and Goodfellas.
