Travis's loneliness is a hyper representation of the same lonelinessmost humans have experienced at different times in different measures.
This is a very good film and one of Martin Scorsese best Goodfellas being my fave. However, the brilliance of this film is primarily aresult of the brilliance of De Niro and Scorsese, one of the greatestactor-director teams in movie history. It is always associated with a nightmare and Martin Scorsese deliversit like a nightmare. Like I said it is not a film to morally uplift youbut one that is depressingly fair. He is Travis, and no greater compliment I can pay his performance than to say that I feel I'm along for the ride with Travis, he has my undivided attention, always!

His attempts at reconciliation by sending flowers are rebuffed, so he berates her at the campaign office, before being kicked out by Tom.
With support like Albert Brooks, Peter Boyle, and Harvey Kietel you can't be talking to me about a more capable cast. The entire movie is sensational- and with lots of style directed by Martin Scorsese, who knows how to set the right mood and atmosphere. Nothing in this movie is overdone or made to look better or worser than it is in real life. In general I cannot say any negative aspect of this film because I havenot found anything bad. An unsettling gem of a film. Travis confides in fellow taxi driver Wizard about his thoughts, which are beginning to turn violent, but Wizard assures him that he will be fine. To try and use the time effectively hebecomes a taxi driver.
The script is brilliant because the detail is engaging butit is this descent into a very modern type of madness that drives thefilm forward. It is somethingone tends to forget about after seeing so many police series wherepeople get shot so often that it gets casual. Theviolent behaviour becomes Travis into a hero, although he had killedmany people and he could do it again. The long nights inthe city, the night environment full of whores, junkies, pimps andthieves are the main elements of the world in which Travis Bicklelives.
