This Screenplay throws at me, the darker side of my own Life .
It tells me I am not alone, It tells me I am alive .
Reading the script was interesting for me because as a teenager i had seen the film numerous times, so reading it i could hear the film in the back of my head. The best part about reading this, for me, was the fact that I got to see just how much of the film dialogue was improvised on the spot. Actors either added or subtracted to the dialogue on some scenes, adding so much more to the film than what was already there in the script. I added this in notes, sometimes word for word the changes. It...more

During the 1970’s, a whole series of brilliant films was produced --- with one of its absolute highlights being “Taxi Driver”, by a young film maker called Martin Scorsese. It showed Hollywood and the rest of the world that a new generation was taking over the movie industry; with new ideas, new stars and more directness and frankness than previously imaginable in Tinseltown. Feelings of lose and depression are addressed as experiences from Americans themselves. After Vietnam, Watergate and the...more
Reading this - the screenplay of Scorcese's film 'Taxi Driver' - confirmed for me what a great movie it it.
The screenplay is a story - dialogue, a plot, a character.
The movie is more than that.
When I watched the film I experienced it - the kind of movement where time gets shorter and you're anticipating what's coming next without realizing that you're holding your breath.
I didn't know until after when I'd read reviews about the famous movie that I was experiencing the descent into psychosis,...more

Entranced with the movie when it first came out I hunted down
the book, which is just a light treating of the script into
readable form, printed
after the movie obviously just to cash in on its popularity
(and suckers like me).

The story's a classic, the movie's a classic, and the character's an icon. In screenplays, for me, the dialogue's everything, and this screenplay had great dialogue that really revealed character.

Although his name is often linked to that of the 'movie brat' generation (Spielberg, Scorsese, Coppola, Lucas, De Palma, etc.) Paul Schrader's background couldn't have been more different. Schrader's strict Calvinist parents refused to allow him to see a film until he was eighteen. Although he more than made up for lost time when studying at Calvin College, Columbia University and UCLA's graduate...more
