The meaning of life, the rewards of participation, taking nothing that is offered as something invalid, always a great delight full of satisfaction to envelope into this film again. Locations and cinematography, sound and music is all worth every second, so even though the film is permanently absorbed into my mind, every time I watch it again I am healed and happier than I was before. A true American Classic. Thank You.

TAXI DRIVER There is something intrinsically poetic in the neo-noir delivery of Taxi Driver. A run-down New York City of the 70’s, the soft jazz score that permeates in and out as the story progresses in the midst of the eventual, yet ever so present, lack of absolute register on film
