Taxi Driver

Mean Streets put Martin Scorsese on the map, but he carved a place for himself in the annals of film history with this disturbing tale of "God's lonely man." What's most disturbing about Travis Bickle is the way that we almost understand his actions in this film: he's so lonely and isolated that he's locked away from the rest of the world, letting his obsessions drive him to the boiling point. Scorsese's film style is remarkable and utterly hypnotic: there are scenes in this film I find my self watching over and over again, as the soft voices, silence, and tension lock my eyes to the screen and put me into a trance. The scene where Travis puts his weapons together, in particular, is so magnetic that it simply grabs you and will not let you go.
