The De Niro before getting all plumb and fat is my favorite actor. Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, Godfather II, Casino, Once upon etc.

I find it overrated a bit... It's a great movie, but does it tell you something, like, something? All I got was a guy running a bit crazy from loneliness, getting awarded a girl undeservingly. Typical american story? Hmmm

Well if that's all you got from the movie you, you have the right to find it overrated.

Whatever you think of the 25 one or so best American movies, next time you watch it keep in mind that Jodie Foster is 13 ****ing years old in it. She's one of the better actresses of her generation, but shame she never evolved past that stage. Definition of a prodigy I guess.

Roger Ebert said it was the best movie about loneliness ever.

Quote:
This utter aloneness is at the center of "Taxi Driver," one of the best and most powerful of all films, and perhaps it is why so many people connect with it even though Travis Bickle would seem to be the most alienating of movie heroes. We have all felt as alone as Travis. Most of us are better at dealing with it.

Amazing movie. Especially the end when he looks at himself in the mirror and he has that crazy look in his eyes.

You know what I mean, if not then let's say up until Cape Fear? It's not like outside that I hated him in other movies, it's just that I liked that version of him better.

Yep and mostly it's because how loneliness is approached, Travis is somehow the master of his loneliness he knows he is lonely he just bases his life on this fact and carries on.

You can argue that Raging Bull is the best movie about paranoia ever.

Pretty much. Cape Fear was his last great performance. Dude played a Bible quoting, psychotic rapist.

I'm not the biggest watching movie fan anymore. My lack of attention span, and ability to always want to fall asleep in the dark is quite alarming.

but

Martin Scorsese films truely are classic, and as good as everyone says they are. You don't need to know much about acting, they are damn good actors/actress. His sound track is simply marvelous also.

Casino
Meanstreets
Cape Fear
Taxi Driver
Raging Bull
King of Comedy
Goodfellas

all of if you haven't seen, will like at worst. You may think its overrated, but at worst you will still like it, and prolly wouldn't mind watching it again.

He was outstanding in "Men of Honor". Not his fault that the script was predictable.
