"Sometimes manic to the edge of lunacy and, along the way, terrifying." - Vincent Canby, New York Times

A Scorsese/De Niro partnership that presents a character that, in many respects, is as frightening as Travis Bickle. Rupert Pupkin (De Niro) is a wannabe stand-up comic who resorts to stalking his idol, talk-show host Jerry Langford (Jerry Lewis), in effort to make the big-time. The dark satire was Scorsese's third box office flop in a row and he still seldom talks about it despite its renewed status as a cult classic.
