5.0 out of 5 stars Taxi Driver - A disturbing experience July 13 2004
Format:DVD
After watching the classic 1976 film "Taxi Driver," viewers may be interested in their reaction. It can be depressing. Martin Scorsese directed this open-sore of a film and of his many classic works, this is the one most obsessively analyzed. "Taxi Driver" is such a raw, visceral experience that after viewing its nightmarish terrain one must decompress.
Seedy does not begin to describe the horror of "Taxi Driver," which details a world of pimps, prostitutes, drug addicts and a loner psycho brilliantly portrayed by Robert De Niro. This film established some of the great talents in motion picture history including De Niro, Scorsese, Albert Brooks and Jodie Foster. I wonder about disturbing epics like "Taxi Driver," "A Clockwork Orange," "Straw Dogs" and "Natural Born Killers." Whenever I visit the video store, I notice these films are usually checked out, empty boxes leaning against the shelf. Who's watching these films, and why so often? The films share a common thread in that they have likable actors (De Niro, Malcolm McDowell, Dustin Hoffman, Woody Harrelson) playing despicable men prone to violent rages. Alienated one and all, these characters have become anti-heroes for a world severely lacking in heroes. There are so many ways to view this film, with multiple levels serving as proof to its complicated brilliance. Urban alienation, cultural emptiness, veiled racism, Watergate analogy and Oswald repression are just a few of the metaphorical doors one can open in this nightmare.
De Niro's Bickle is a Vietnam veteran suffering from insomnia. He takes a job as a cab driver to work nights, driving through the most dangerous New York neighborhoods for fares. He becomes infatuated with a beautiful woman (Cybill Shepherd) who works at the campaign office of Palantine.

1.0 out of 5 stars Region 2 Nov. 23 2013
By Janice
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is the second time I have accidentally ordered a DVD I can not use in this country. Why is amazon selling dvd's in Canada that are for region 2. Unfortunately we didn't realize this until we were ready to watch it. Very disappointing!

Robert De Niro not only gives the performance of his career but quite simply one of the all time great performances in the history of film in Martin Scorsese’s thriller about a mentally unstable Vietnam War veteran who obsessively cruises the mean streets of New York City as a nightshift cab driver.

Based on Paul Schrader’s gritty screenplay, one of the most fascinating things about the film is how open to interpretation everything is. Especially the main character. Is Travis Bickle a victim? A hero? A psychopath? A bit of all three? The loneliness, decadence and sleaze that surrounds him night after night leads him down a deadly path of violent urges, but at the same time, consumes him with the desire to not only reach out to the stunningly beautiful Betsy (Cybill Shepherd), but to also be a savior to a 12-year-old runaway prostitute (Jodie Foster).

Scorsese’s direction is flawless as is the film’s score and cinematography. Shot after shot of the nightmarish neon-lit city landscape is perfectly captured in a way that leads viewers to feel as lost in it all as De Niro’s tortured character.

Taxi Driver arrives on Blu-ray with truly reference video & audio quality and comes in beautiful packaging featuring 12 lobby card reprints and an amazing assortment of well-produced extras. Special features include three audio commentaries, an interactive script to screen feature, a making-of documentary (71 min), seven featurettes (totaling over 100 min), storyboard to film comparisons with optional introduction by Martin Scorsese, photo galleries and a trailer. It’s an impressive collection of interesting items that take viewers deeper into the film like never before.

Martin Scorsese’s cinematic masterpiece is now also one of the best overall Blu-rays I’ve ever seen. It’s a top quality presentation all around with hours of fascinating extras and is truly a must-own release. HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!

5.0 out of 5 stars Taxi Driver July 19 2004
Format:DVD
To start this off, I'll just say this: Do yourself a favor and buy this fantastic film. If for nothing else, buy it for DeNiro's INCREDIBLE performance! I'm a movie buff myself, and I have never seen such amazing acting. It's a crime he didn't win the oscar. Secondly, it's directed by Martin Scorsese, one of the more brilliant filmmakers of our time, and written by Paul Schrader. This is the team that brought you Raging Bull. When these two geniuses get together, they make pure movie magic. And finally, Jodie Foster. She's only fourteen years old, and beautifully brings to life the child prostitute who is secretly hating the horrible city she lives in. One of the most brilliant touches of filmmaking was made here when Scorsese portrays NYC as hell, such as focusing on the smoke spewing out of the sewers, and making Betsy, Travis Bickle's love, seem like an angel among all the demons.
The story goes something like this: Travis Bickle (Robert DeNiro) Is a taxi driver who can't seem to sleep. He works at night, and the city around him fills him with paranoia, for the gangsters and the slime on the streets at night every day seem to be everywhere. Among all of these demons and devils, Travis sees an angel, a gorgeous woman named Betsy. He immediately falls in love with her, but his anti-social tendencies scare her off when he brings her to a pornographic movie on their second date, thinking it was just like all of the other movies. When she leaves him and won't return any of his phone calls, his depression rises until he meets a child prostitue named Iris (Jodie Foster) and her pimp named Sport (Harvey Keitel). Feeling the deepest sympathy for her, he tries to help her leave that terrible lifestyle, not believing her pleas that she loves her being a prostitute and loves her pimp.
To sum this whole review up, do yourself a favor and watch this great piece of work. See Scorsese's nightmarish vision of NYC, and Travis Bickle's slow descent into insanity.
