    Very intelligent satire film which presents a comical yet tragic character who wants nothing but fame. DeNiro was fantastic! 6 years 3 months ago

    Compulsive and fascinating viewing that is also very funny and has De Niro on top form, displaying his range by playing against type. My problems with the film stem from the way that Pupkin seems like two different characters: the first half of the movie he comes across as delusional and lacking any self-awareness, but in the second half when he's putting his plan into action he's cynical, manipulative and very aware of how others are perceiving his actions. 4 years 9 months ago
