You Listening To Me?

Is that a 'Singing in the Rain' poster on my tram?-)

When I was on my last road-trip and staying in Melbourne I caught a tram into the city centre and walked it's mean streets and came across a taxi driver pointing a gun in my direction.
Ends September 18th, 2016 (left click on image to make bigger to read)
It was a exhibition of Scorsese films and I saw the word "free" outside the building somewhere and thought I would take a look inside.

Turns out it was 25 bucks to get into the Scorsese exhibition and the free one was for a celebration of Aussie films and TV shows, and not being that big of a Scorsese fan I opted for the free exhibition and saved myself $25.
I thought the original car was at a pub somewhere in the outback.
To me 'Taxi Driver' was the film that inspired Hinckley to try and kill Ronald Reagan, because Hinckley had a crush on Jodie Foster.

The 'Perfect Match' TV show at the free exhibition
The weird thing is though that Hinckley was freed before this exhibition would even come to a close.

EXCLUSIVE: John Hinckley Jr., Ronald Reagan’s would-be assassin, shops at Target on first full day of freedom
And a film about a guy in the military who tried to tip his country off about the NSA listening in on all of their conversations and watching and recording their internet interactions starts in cinemas a week after a real enemy of the state is released from prison.
Oddly enough, on the subject of 'Snowden', Scorsese is producing a film called 'The Snowman' penciled in for 2017 
on his IMDB homepage:-)
The Matrix was filmed in Australia (Oz) you know?-)
Why do these things always remind me of Plato's cave?-)

Taxi Driver Trailer (HD)
And on a personal note my father who was a real life taxi driver for most of his life passed away today (Sept 13th, 2016), which was in-between Hinckley being released from prison and the Scorsese exhibition coming to a close just after 'Snowden' is released at the cinema.
I don't even know what movie this is from, but it looks rather forboding

Starring Jodie Foster
Also interesting was a movie released around 9/11 starring a former comedian playing a real life pilot of a plane that crashes in New York after the flight plan going out the window;-)

Starring Jodie Foster

"Cinema is a matter of what's in the frame and what's out."

Martin Scorsese
Hinckley and Taxi Driver?
Movies have a lot to say on a synchromystic level when you really listen to them wouldn't you say?-)
So, Hinckley a real criminal is free to walk the mean streets of freedom, while Snowden remains a captive of the system he tried to free.   
Ironic, or what?
