Martin Scorsese

Taxi Driver

114' - 1976 - Crime, Drama - Dialogue: Spanish, English, Spanish, English
Director: Martin Scorsese Composer: Bernard Herrmann With: Robert De Niro, Jodie Foster, Albert Brooks, Harvey Keitel
Taxi Driver is an alarmingly plausible character study of Vietnam vet Travis Bickle (De Niro), an alienated insomniac who spends his nights driving a New York cab. Much of what we see of the city is viewed through his windshield. After long night shifts, he still can't sleep and spends hours in porno theatres or alone in his squalid room. He has nothing but contempt for the "scum" he sees all around him and prophesies that someday a big rain will come and clean all the filth from the streets. De Niro's world brightens a little when he sees a beautiful blonde woman, Betsy (Cybill Shepherd), in the campaign offices of presidential candidate Charles Palantine (Leonard Harris). He quickly develops a crush on her, and she finds him intriguing enough to agree to go out with him.
