A teenage "Taxi Driver"
4 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So I work in this crazy business, the film business. And the word I've been hearing is that it is a "teenage Taxi Driver". So, I got my hands on a copy of the script. I can see why people are comparing it so much to "Garden State" because of it's sort of coming-of-age appeal. However, "Girl, Interrupted" was slow and introspective while I found this script to be a real page-turner. The story was non-traditional and very unpredictable. I also get the comment that somebody made about "Trainspotting". I can see that. However, the "Taxi Driver" comparison is the one that, to me, makes the most sense. It deals with a person who has been through too much, seen too much, and the only way they can express it is through rage, which comes out when you least expect it. At least, I never saw it coming. Nor could I have ever predicted the end for that matter. This movie is in competition at South By Southwest this year and I wish them all the luck in the world. The script reads confidently, like a movie that should be seen.
