Taxi Driver (1976)

A mentally unstable Vietnam War veteran works as a night-time taxi driver in New York City where the perceived decadence and sleaze feeds his urge for violent action, attempting to save a preadolescent prostitute in the process.

Idk, at first it seems weird or even boring, but a second view on this may be enough to get the essence of the movie, how fucked up travis is, which is really interesting, and i quite liked it. Found out that the "you're talkin to me" scene was a De Niro rehersal and the cameras were on, turning out to be one of the most iconic scenes ever, and some of the cabs conversations weren't scripted, don't know if that's true. So yeah, classics are classics. There's a reason for that.

Taxi Driver is a very well made film with some of the most iconic scenes in movie history. The entire crew, and especially director Martin Scorsese and actors Robert De Niro and an astonishingly young Jodie Foster, does a splendid job in bringing this tale of a latent psychopath to life. My only gripe with the movie is that it was a bit too gloomy and depressive to watch, especially since I saw it once before, a long time ago, and remembered the final outcome. I respect the craft on display here, but it will never be a favourite of mine. Perhaps tales of brooding psychopaths are just not my cup of tea.
