Jack Newman’s review published on Letterboxd:
5 out of 5
"I think someone should just take this city and just...just flush it down the fuckin toilet"
Thoughts: wow. No movie has ever made me feel the way Taxi Driver has. I could spend hours and just talking about the title. A film so complex with as simple a name as Taxi Driver. I sat in awe for a straight two hours and then a long time after the theater lights had turned on. At one point I even forgot I was sitting in a movie theater watching a film. Taxi Driver sucks you in and never lets you back out again. This film is legitimately perfect. From acting all the way to sound effects.
"I got some bad ideas in my head"
Taxi Driver has so much jaw dropping acting that you just wish every film could be this great. I was floored by De Niro's amazing acting. From Jodie Foster to Harvey Keitel the acting was purely perfect. Even the director himself played a great role as a man who plans to murder his wife.
"Here is a man that stood up"
The plot. The plot was one of those rare once in a lifetime things that you'll never see again. True brilliance was struck while making this film. The way they took a simple cabbie and turned it into what they did is unrivaled. Even the score was perfection. I can't get it out of my head and I never want it to leave just like this film. Taxi Driver is a film that every person should see before they die because it is so eye opening that it's a rare gift to watch.
