How many of us are like Rupert Pupkin?

If you haven't seen King of Comedy, you have to see it. It is a classic Martin Scorsese film that ought to get the same acclaim like Raging Bull and Taxi Driver. The lead character is a young Robert De Niro who plays Rupert Pupkin, a loser and dreamer who fantasizes about making it big one day at any cost. The truth is, he is pathetic and lost. But this doesn't stop him from dreaming big. I say go Rupert go!


  1. i haven't seen this film since i was a kid, i need to add it to my netflix, i don't think i was able to appreciate it as a little kid whose family just got HBO.

  2. i really dig this movie. it's a classic...

  3. Ally you are correct. You will appreciate this film more as an adult.
