Taxi Driver (1976)

(On TV, August 1999) This rescues itself from pointlessness in the last five minutes. What was up to then an unpleasant series of episodes starring a low-life taxi driver peppered by occasional moments (“You talking to me? Good, because I’m the only one here.”) suddenly becomes worthwhile, though one can’t help but to feel that this is one short film’s material stretched out to almost two hours. Viewer might be excused if they keep thinking about how many other movies are a more worthwhile investment of time.
