Taxi Driver had a good cast but unfortunately, bored me. There was far too many scenes of New York sidewalkes and freakish individuals standing around without movie purpose. Sorry, this taxi had a flat tire.
This is one of my favorite movies. I am a big fan of The Band. To see them perform with other rock stars at their farewell concert is a great storyline and also very entertaining. Every serious rock and roll fan of the 1960s and 1970s should own this movie. It's a music classic!
Despite the early stylistic flourishes, Alice is a mostly naturalistic venture from Scorsese, and not that indicative of what would follow in his career. But it's a fantastic combination of these two seemingly divisive styles.
Alternating between gritty realism and red-hued fantasy, this is one of those 70s films that has worn well, managing to be universal in its heart while picking out specifics that now look exactly of their time.
