Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

Once again, I availed myself of Netflix's capability of sending some of their movies over the Internet, and watched Taxi Driver, another film that I missed in its original run. IIRC, it came out during my senior year in college, and I didn't have time to go see it, between applying to medical school, and studying. I've heard about it; heck, I recall seeing the gunfight somewhere (on the Oscars? I don't recall), but I'd never seen it all the way through. Anyway, it's strange and unsettling, which I suppose is the intention. What's especially curious is that it manages to be so, even though I knew, more or less, what to expect, and I knew how it ends. That's rather impressive.
