... We don't want to freak you out the way Travis Bickle did Betsy by taking her to a a Swedish sex movie but we did find the poster for the movie for you. It was a real movie called Ur Karlekens Sprak (The Language of Love). It was a Swedish Sex-Ed film that somehow became an international hit. Perfect for a first date.
He's a poet, He's a liar, he's a prophet, he's a picker

... John Hinckley the man who attempted to assasinate Ronald Regan was obsessed with the movie Taxi Driver. He modeled his behavior after Travis Bickle and was obsessively in love with Jodie Foster. He felt that the only way to impress the actress was to shoot the President. The movie was shown as part of his defense in his trial. The Famous American Trials website has all the fascinating details behind this crime and the role the movie Taxi Driver played in it.
... Just for fun. A very clever video turning Taxi Driver into "the romantic comedy it was meant to be".
