Taxi Driver (1976)

The sleazy and haunting urban atmosphere created by this film’s gritty cinematography and beautifully melancholic soundtrack is incredible and thoroughly compelling. The plot, meanwhile, is quite loose and meandering with no real destination, so the film could only fully succeed and captivate with a strong central character study: Fortunately, it has just that, with De Niro consistently excellent in his many solo scenes (“You talkin’ to me?”) as the unnervingly unstable and violent Travis.

8.6/10
