Taxi Driver

Show preview

(1976) Directed by Martin Scorsese. Insomniac ex-Marine Travis Bickle (Robert De Niro) works the nightshift, driving his cab throughout decaying mid-'70s New York City, wishing for a "real rain" to wash the "scum" off the neon-lit streets. Chronically alone, Travis cannot connect with anyone, not even with such other cabbies as blowhard Wizard (Peter Boyle). He becomes infatuated with vapid blonde presidential campaign worker Betsy (Cybill Shepherd), who agrees to a date and then spurns Travis when he cluelessly takes her to a porno movie. After an encounter with a malevolent fare (Martin Scorsese), the increasingly paranoid Travis begins to condition himself for his imagined destiny, a mission that mutates from assassinating Betsy's candidate, Charles Palatine (Leonard Harris), to violently "saving" teen prostitute Iris (Jodie Foster) from her pimp, Sport (Harvey Keitel). Travis's bloodbath turns him into a media hero; but has it truly calmed his mind? [Drama | Crime]
