Stunning and scary. De Niro once agains shows that he is great.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
To some, Scorsese and writer Paul Schrader's perception of hell--as a crazed taxi driver's vision of N. Y. C. --was brilliant. To us, this gory, cold-blooded story of sick man's lurid descent into violence is ugly and unredeeming. Judge for yourself. Searing performances and Bernard Herrmann's final music score are among film's few virtues.
