Taxi Driver (1976)

Taxi Driver (1:04:48)   Rated R for some horrible, horrible language.

Taxi Driver

First, the winner of our “Pick Your Podcast” contest is announced right at the top of the 92nd episode of the T100P! Then we get into an epic discussion about Marty Scorsese’s first of many masterpieces. Robert De Niro & the whole cast stink of authenticity, as does 1970s NYC. We tackle mental illness, frustrated sexuality and of course loneliness. To better enjoy all that dark stuff, get yourself an order of smooth Sparkplug Coffee!
