Football player channels Robert De Niro, Johnny Manziel has Travis Bickle “Taxi Driver Look.” NY POST..The troubled quarterback got into a fistfight during a friend’s wedding this weekend in Hawaii, TMZ reports. The Browns flameout did not initiate the rumble, but things began to turn sour between Manziel and another guest after Friday night’s rehearsal dinner at the luxurious Four Seasons Resort. ‘You talking to me? Well I’m the only one here.’ The 23-year-old Manziel has been linked to multiple episodes of violence since his NFL career crashed and burned. He was reportedly involved in fight at a Los Angeles strip club in April. Previously, in the most troubling incident, in late January, Manziel allegedly assaulted ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley: She swore an affidavit saying he kept her from leaving a hotel room, threw her into a car by her hair, slapped her so hard that she lost hearing in one ear and threatened murder-suicide. Manziel was indicted in Dallas on domestic violence charges.
Travis Bickle “Taxi Driver”….. Director Martin Scorsese explains the movie “Taxi Driver” character Travis Bickle as a ticking time bomb that winds down goes boom and then resets itself to start all over again, sounds just like Johnny Manziel. A mentally unstable Vietnam War veteran works as a night-time taxi driver in New York City where the perceived decadence and sleaze feeds his urge for violent action, attempting to save a pre-adolescent prostitute in the process. This film is filled with such memorable lines e.g.Travis Bickle ‘You talking to me? Well I’m the only one here.’ and the many powerful scenes that stay in your head after it’s finished.
