Well I've just watched this film, with having it referenced more than once to me! I'm glad I've finally watched it! Great acting by De Niro! Was truly stunning in every way. I also enjoyed the cold shoulder he produced in some 1on1 scenes! Can't believe how young Jodie foster is in this too. Great little actress. I can see why this film is so highly rated, but it's highly rated as a top 10 by an older generation. Which is fine, but me at the age of 22, I did find the prolonged panned angled with backing jazz track a little boring at times. None the less, it's still a great film. Ending scene left it with a positive close!

You talking to me? by Peter Roberts

Superb, Scorsese at his finest. A taxi driver with insomnia slowly descends in to madness and gets tired of all the scum and filth in the streets of New York. Travis Bickle focuses on saving a young hooker and the film culminates in a blood bath at the end. The film has lots in it but the main thing that makes it stand out is the journey the main character goes through. It is a master class in acting from De Niro and everyone involved in this film was on top form. It is an all time classic and the soundtrack put the cherry on top.
