TAXI DRIVER---you talking to me


                                       Confronts reflection,
                                    psychotic image triggers
                                          his apocalypse!

                          For the Senryu a movie scene contest

    Thanks for the comments, for those who haven't seen this 1976 movie it is a tour de force for Robert De Niro and Jodi Foster. Nothing can prepare you for the apocalypse as Travis Bickle (De Niro) starts cleaning out the sewer. "Are you talking to me?" holds it's own with Jack Nicholson's "Here's Johnny!" in the Shining. Both are a real walk on the dark side of life.

    Howdy John! Hope problems don't accumulate in 2's this year and I hope that the New Year is off to a great start! I keep a little list of movies I would like to see and as soon as the weather turns cold, I begin chiseling away at it. I will add your taxi driver to it..looks inviting and super exciting! Congrats on this win. C O N G R A T S! Gwendolen
