Taxi Driver- "You Talkin' To Me?"

Just watched Taxi Driver while the kids napped. One of my favorite things about the movies from this time period is seeing the big name actors and actresses before they were really big name. I also like knowing the context of where famous movie quotes like “You talkin’ to me?” come from.
While this movie was a little slow going for most of the movie, that seems to be the way that many of the 70s movies on this list are. The best part of the movie was probably the epilog that followed the climax. Having read wikipedia’s interpretations of the ending, I think it’s even more interesting.
So, overall good movie. It was definitely darker than movies that I typically enjoy, but it was worth watching.
