Product description

Product Description

Groundbreaking drama of urban alienation from director Martin Scorsese and writer Paul Schrader. Vietnam veteran Travis Bickle (Robert De Niro) works as a New York City taxi driver, and is consumed with disgust by the 'filth' which surrounds him. His explosive, psychotic loathing eventually drives him to make an attempt on the life of a politician, and when it fails he turns his attention to saving a prostitute (Jodie Foster) from the clutches of her pimp.

From Amazon.co.uk

Taxi Driver is the definitive cinematic portrait of loneliness and alienation manifested as violence. It is as if director Martin Scorsese and screenwriter Paul Schrader had tapped into precisely the same source of psychological inspiration ("I just knew I had to make this film", Scorsese would later say), combined with a perfectly timed post-Watergate expression of personal, political and societal anxiety. Robert De Niro, as the tortured, ex-Marine cab driver Travis Bickle, made movie history with his chilling performance as one of the most memorably intense and vividly realised characters ever committed to film. Bickle is a self-appointed vigilante who views his urban beat as an intolerable cesspool of blighted humanity. He plays guardian angel for a young prostitute (Jodie Foster), but not without violently devastating consequences. This masterpiece, which is not for all tastes, is sure to horrify some viewers, but few could deny the film's lasting power and importance. --Jeff Shannon
