"Are you talkin' to me? Are you talkin' to me?" Travis Bickle
Played By: Robert De Niro
Film: Taxi Driver
Why He's On The List: Given that Travis Bickle - staple of a thousand student walls - is a complete psychopath who likes to take dates to porno movies and fixate on young prostitutes and project himself as their saviour, it's perhaps slightly disturbing that he's become so iconic. But of all the fractured, splintered souls brought to life by De Niro and Scorsese, Bickle may be the most compelling.
Finest Hour: The final shoot-out, culminating in that horrific image of Bickle putting his fingers to his head and pulling the 'trigger'.
