MOST RECENT

THE WHITE RIBBON (2008) | Directed by Michael Haneke | “Just before WWI, a baron (Ulrich Tukur), a doctor (Rainer Bock) and a pastor (Burghart Klaussner) rule over a small German village, weaponizing their social stature and administering harsh punishments. One day, the doctor falls off his horse after it trips over a wire strung between two trees. More pranks follow, seemingly without reason, all directed at the village's upper class and growing increasingly more brutal with time. There are no suspects, but a local schoolteacher (Christian Friedel) has his suspicions.”

Taxi Driver (1976) (2/2)
The transitions and continuity editing become increasingly jarring, to the point that the film almost seems to be reassembling itself in accordance with the character descending further and further into this terrifyingly claustrophobic schizophrenia. Although the content is disturbing in and of itself, the way it's presented truly amplifies the sense that we're observing glimpses of a real life filtered through a nightmare -- a sentiment you can feel from the very beginning.The opening title sequence is drenched in these saturated neon hues of city lights almost drowned out by a hopelessly black city, ebbing away at the fringes of Travis's detached windshield point of view, in low-frame rate and set to that beautifully twisted soundtrack. The acting in this film is also outstanding. At no point have I ever been able to really associate Robert De Niro as anyone but Travis Bickle (until I saw Raging Bull, of course). This can barely even be thought of as a performance at this point, especially when you consider the fact that De Niro actually drove around in a cab as an actual taxi driver. His performance is devoid of exaggerated delivery, or exuberantly vehement displays of catharsis marked by lengthy monologues and banal self-realization. This character was clearly so thoroughly internalized by De Niro in this film that absolutely no further conviction is necessary than the minutiae in his sublime, neurotic performance. The tiniest of details -- such as the amount of spaces that are there between one line of dialogue and the next, or the way his eyes shift from subject to subject -- are able to make this character incredibly complex. Jodie Foster and Harvey Keitel are also absolutely fantastic in their roles. I really love that no one is trying to steal the show in this film, per se, and rather everyone feels like an actual human being, speaking over each other in conversations and covetously only offering a tiny glimpse into what they might be thinking or what their motives might be. Overall, this is an exceptional piece of filmmaking and I just wanted to remember it.

(1/2)
I know I'm late, but since it was Martin Scorsese's birthday, I want to talk about my favourite film of his. Not exactly an uncommon choice, Taxi Driver (1976) struck a chord with its audience immediately upon release. It's fascinating to deliberate on that alone, since this is not exactly the portrait of an idealized heroic archetype. Travis Bickle is probably the most morally self-contradictory character ever to be portrayed in such a realistic and believable manner in a film, at least at the time. I've been trying to articulate why this film is such a cinematic touchstone for a while now and it's occured to me that there aren't any conspicuous elements of it that elevate it technically or conceptually above other classics throughout film history. However, I realised soon that something that utterly distinguishes Taxi Driver from most films is the way the character is powerfully, and purposefully complemented by the cinematography, editing and sound design. Several shots in this film cleverly and subtly break conventional rules of filmmaking to shift emphasis. The camera might neglect its character by tracking away from him to an empty corridor, emphasising the unbearable sense of vulnerability and self-worthlessness he may be experiencing in a certain scene. It may zoom in on a bubbling drink while having the sound of the drink drown out the diegetic ambient sound to convey loneliness, and a quietly pulsating sense of rage building up within the character. Sometimes the shot composition will centralise an unusual aspect of the frame, such as a seemingly unimportant fight or conflict in the backdrop, so that our own vantage point of the world is always as slanted as Travis's own. Even the gorgeous soundtrack is this semi-romantic, semi-demented New York jazz piece that masterfully illustrates just how paradoxical Travis is. Every scene in this film pretty much confines itself to this character's frame of mind, purveying an unforgettable sense of utter isolation and impending, doomsday-esque dread.
