Taxi Driver (1976)

Released in 1976 and directed by Martin Scorsese this film stars Robert De Niro as a 26yo guy named Travis Bickle who was honorably discharged from the Marines and is slowly going insane coping with life in the not so attractive areas of 70's New York. To keep his mind occupied and to support himself he decides to drive taxi for long, long hours to help keep his mind off the filth and crime that disgusts him to the very core. He picks up some pretty eccentric characters while on duty. Martin Scorsese himself plays the role of a pissed off Jewish man whose wife is cheating on him. The scene is bloody hilarious! There is young Jodie Foster who plays a 12yo prostitute with Harvey Keitel as her pimp.

Bickle shows clear disdain for immoral women. There is an election going on for a man named Charles Palentine who is running for President and many people in support of him have gotten together and work as volunteers to help get him elected. While on duty Travis notices a beautiful and elegant woman played by Cybill Shepherd working in the election headquarters. He summons the courage to go in and ask her out. He figures that she is one of the "Good Ones". Not immoral at all. She agrees to go to a movie with him. Problem is, it's quasi-porn. Offended, she gets up and leaves the theater in disgust. The next day Travis tries to call her up. She picks up on the first call but doesn't on the many more he makes. Frustrated, Travis storms into the headquarters asking her why she won't answer his calls. Out of anger he now accuses her of being like all of the other immoral women in the city. It's at this point that Travis begins to get more psychotic in his views of life in the city. He begins to craft weapons and decides to eliminate the filth himself "Bronson Style". If I continue it would spoil the movie for those who haven't seen it. I dare you to watch it! lol
