Taxi Driver (1976) 
Taxi Driver review
4/4 stars

Robert De Niro as Travis Bickle, is a former Marine and a taxi driver who enjoys pornography and women. He meets Betsy (Cybill Shepard), campaign volunteer for New York Senator Charles Palantine. Bickle encounters a 12 year old prostitute named Iris (Jodie Foster). He finds a way to let Iris escape from Sport (Harvey Keitel). An enthralling screenplay, endearing score and excellent cinematography that showed the hellish streets, the picture exemplifies societies vile. Flow of the film was flawlessly accomplished. Foster and De Niro were brilliant in their roles; you see the charm in Iris and the recluse nature of Travis. Some memorable quotes: Travis Bickle – “Someday a real rain will come and wash all this scum off the streets.” “All my life needed was a sense of someplace to go. I don't believe that one should devote his life to morbid self-attention.” The character of Bickle represents change from a mundane looser to becoming a hero with principles. It epitomizes making a choice like Iris did with her life or Travis battling his inner demons, which we all have from time to time based on certain situations. It also has one of the most analyzed endings, was it a dream or did Travis become a hero? Either way, justice was served since it "washed" away a few criminals that corrupted the streets. In the famous retort of Travis – “You talkin' to me?” The film certainly did, and it is a timeless tour de force of realism.
