Hübsches Video-Essay über Scorseses Erzähltechniken in „Taxi Driver“: The Eyes of Taxi Driver.

The idea of subjectivity is not exclusive to Taxi Driver in the world of filmmaking, but Taxi Driver uses subjectivity to perfection. Using an array of cinematographic techniques, director Martin Scorsese crafted a highly stylized world centered around a single unforgettable character, Travis Bickle. Scorsese practically hypnotizes us and forces us to see the world through the eyes of Travis Bickle, played by Robert DeNiro with his legendary intensity. The result is one of the most unique rides in the history of cinema—not just through the crime-infested streets of 1970s New York City, but through the mind of one of of cinema’s singular anti-heroes.
