A masterpiece by all means. DeNiro is one hell of an actor and this movie proves it.
But then again I personally believe it should've ended when he was lying down wounded on the couch; that would've definitely made it even more perfect than it already is. And although it is known that the ending is Scorsese's own commentary on how the media tends to glorify psychopaths and make heroes out of them. I still stick to my opinion as to how the movie should have ended.
It wasn't like a cabbie ride around newyork, it was more like going through the bylanes of de niro's mind. The movie encapsulated newyork in its most decadent state. I was so drawn by its hazy camerawork that travi's mental image,his hatred, his disappointment,his helplessness, his inability to comprehend the meaning of his existence and the scum that breeds around him everything was projected on my mind. The thematic change in the hollywood movies of 1970's-1980's had dished out a lot of spectacular movies,movies which were honest in the treatment of their characters, their potrayal was more matured and auteur's style stood for something and this being is definitely one of the most glorious movies of that spectacular era.Pure Masterpiece.
