I'd give different answers to those questions
unless you prefer the former, then that.
best performance is raging bull (king of comedy a close second) whereas I'd say that the best film he's in is a toss-up between The Deer Hunter and Once Upon a Time in America.
Controversial opinion for the day:
TaxiDriver is massively over-rated
Was just about to 'this' until I read your "TaxiDriver is massively over-rated" nonsense.
No worries, I know its a minority opinion
(add any others. i'm disqualifying the Meet The Parents/Fockers films).
maybe not his best film but a great performance, really understated and not really like any of his other roles
As De Niro and Keitel play characters the other would go on to excel in the rest of their careers
I'll get my coat...
<ahem> ...I'll get me straitjacket...
anyway The King of Comedy for me, it may even be Scorcese's best too
