Possibly the best first person perspective movie! Taxi Driver (1976)
A lonely depressed mental Vietnam vet, Travis Bickles is stable but mentally unstable man. It is unclear of what he is suffering off, he could suffer from a mild form of autism, maybe PTSD from going through nam, or even possibly being a psychopath. It was never stated. Taxi Driver is a classic, but it is quite dark and depressing. The movies revolves around Travis saving a 13 year old girl that is a prostitute from a pimp. Swear words are constant throughout the entire movie.. The F bomb is said dozens of times, the C word is used once or twice. also words such as N*****, D*mn, h*** B****, a** are said. The violence in this film is realistic/disturbing. A man was robbing a store. Travis then pulls out a gun and shoots the robber in the head. The clerk that was being robbed, picks up the dead robber and begins beating the corps with a crowbar. "Later in the movie " Travis tries to assassinate a candidate running for President! Near the end of the film, Travis commits a mass shooting in order to save this girl from these pimpsters. This shootout scene is quite intense airy gritty and very realistic! Travis shoots a man's hand off, then soon shooting another person in the face multiple times in slow motion. I won't spoil the rest, but this shooting was very different from your average bloody movie shootouts. Throughout the movie Travis is seen in x rated theaters watching pornos. While Taxi Driver is a unique film, make sure to keep it out of reach from kids.
