"I saw this in the 80's then again a few years ago. It definitely changes how you feel about this movie. Many will practice the "you talking to me?" scene from this movie and rightly so. It's mesmerizing and concerning at the same time. I recommend this because it is a humanly, powerful film. "
"It was an interesting film. I would definitely watch again to be more familiar and make a more concrete opinion on it. There’s a psychological aspect of this film and “Travis” De Niro’s character. The “you talking to me” scene is everything! It’s a powerful film which everyone should watch due to its context. Travis deals with mental illness which is a stigma in this time. I just found disturbing watching a character playing as a 12 year old as a worker and watching her pimp kinda dance with her. Foster’s entire character was difficult for me to watch. Also since this is a movie from the 70s era, the language is pretty much not progressive which is expected. The background in the film is really interesting though!"
"This is classic cinema."
