100
A brilliant nightmare and like all nightmares it doesn't tell us half of what we want to know. (Review of Original Release)
100
Its deeply anarchic sensibility has kept Taxi Driver fresh all these years. (Review twenty years after release).
100
It hasn't aged so much as triumphantly metastasized. (Review twenty years after release).

ReelViews
One of Scorsese's most influential and disturbing films on the big screen. (Review twenty years after release).
100
You either love it or you love it; in any case, Martin Scorsese's history-making scald is truly a phenomenon from another day and age.
100
An undeniably brilliant, nightmarish portrait of one man's personal hell. (Review of original release)
80
Acting of this sort is rare in films. It is a display of talent, which one gets in the theater, as well as a demonstration of behavior, which is what movies usually offer. Were Mr. De Niro less an actor, the character would be a sideshow freak. (Review of Original Release)
70
Chicago Reader
Perhaps the most formally ravishing-as well as the most morally and ideologically problematic-film ever directed by Martin Scorsese. (Review of Original Release).
