That was me. I just think the frequent statement that this is a "remake" of Taxi Driver misses the point of the movie, since the similarities are mostly on the surface. There are definite parallels to The King of Comedy, but as I thought about it, the one that came to mind as the greatest parallel is American Psycho for several reasons. The social conflict, NY setting (yeah, Gotham, but seriously...) and the time setting. They are told from opposite sides of the social coin, but express the same emotional dilemma. Finally the violent "behavior" of the protagonist and the reliability of the narrative. Arthur Fleck and Patrick Bateman are essentially the same person, born to radically different circumstances.
