Taxi Driver Starring Woody Allen

Why? Because I’m a giver. That’s all I do, day and night, is give. People come up to me in the street and ask, “Anthony, what are you doing?” And I say, “Giving.” I’m giving right now, in my mind. Some people are taking. A few are giving back, because I bought a small. You know how it goes.

By the way, in light of the subject of my previous post: most people read Taxi Driver as a film about a man seeking heroic purpose in life at a time when the “hero” was being written out of history as a macho relic. I see Travis as one seeking absolution, and that horrific shootout at the climax as his failed attempt at a baptism of blood.

Enjoy! (But beware, some icky language and Karo Syrup toward the end.)

    1. At the googolplex near me, there seems to be a retro viewing of virtually every film made in the 1970s. A few weeks ago it was Grease. Jaws would be fun ONLY if it were shown outdoors…at the beach.

      1. Man, you’re not kidding. This is actually part of a series which includes The Terminator, Spaceballs, Goldfinger, Gremlins, and for some reason Double Indemnity. Nostalgia reigns. Still. It’s Jaws so shut and take my money.

        1. The genius of Jaws is that, no matter how many times you’ve seen it, it always always works. The last 20 minutes will always pull you in.
