OK cast reflections - nothing special
30 June 2004 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

De Niro isn't generally very good at interviews so basically we get to see Scorsese and co. (with occasional comments by De Niro) on how the film was originally conceived, the writing process, the casting process, the directing process, the post-production process...etc...

Some good stories I hadn't heard about before. The best ones are those regarding the conception of the film -- all the other stuff isn't all that special and to be honest, although it's a good hour-long documentary, it could have been better. In fact the so-called Special Edition of TAXI DRIVER (one of my all-time favorite films) didn't even feature a 5.1 remix or commentary by Scorsese. Ah! What a disgrace.

Hopefully they'll release a 2-disc edition some time in the future with Scorsese commentary. Heck, De Niro did one for ANALYZE THIS -- why not TAXI DRIVER?
