Taxi Driver

Unspooled #17 September 6, 2018

This week Paul & Amy cruise through 1976’s terrifying character study Taxi Driver. They ask whether the film is anti-misogynist or simply misogynist, debate whether the ending is real or fake, and discover a surprising source of inspiration for another film on the AFI 100. Plus: actor and writer Curt Neill tells us about his experiences driving for Uber, and how it helped him empathize with Travis Bickle.

If E.T. didn’t stand for extra-terrestrial…what would it stand for? Next week is E.T. week, so call the Unspooled voicemail line at 747-666-5824 and tell us what you think!
