    Another MASTERPIECE from Scorsese and totally underrated. De Niro, Lewis and Sandra Bernhard are three titans absolutely nailing some of their best acting work ever.

    This movie has so many levels (it’s actually a drama deep down, masquerading as a comedy) and themes: it feels like a thematic continuation of Taxi Driver and alienation in modern life, that’s true; but it also talks about the fine line between reality and self-delusion, the unspoken traumas of the past that form the protagonist’s personality in the present; as well as the celebrity culture and the obsession ordinary people feel for TV and movie stars.

    A beautiful film. Thanks so much RL!

    I love when Rupert is deep in his fantasy world at home in his ‘studio’ pretending to be on The Jerry Langford Show and his mother hollers at him to be quiet. De Niro is excellent. Like the father of Bob & Doug in ‘Strange Brew’, we never see Rupert’s mom. ‘Strange Brew’ used the voice of Mel Blanc as their dad. So many great moments in this film.

    This is a droll delight. I’m not a big comedy fan but I’ve watched this film so many times I’ve lost count. It’s like the flip side of ‘Taxi Driver’. When this was first released it didn’t get the recognition it deserved and actually it was a few years ahead of its time. Definitely one of De Niro’s best performances. Everybody does a great job here especially Jerry Lewis (this is my favorite Lewis film) and he makes the perfect vicitm. Thanks RL,
