Overview

To celebrate the release of his astounding new feature First Reformed, we're revisiting writer/director Paul Schrader's seedy 1976 classic Taxi Driver. Lonely Vietnam veteran Travis Bickle (Robert De Niro) tries to stave off his chronic insomnia by taking a job as taxi driver on the mean streets of New York City. When he's not on the road, he's either checking out X-rated cinemas or spying on political volunteer Betsy (Cybill Shepard). His already unstable mental condition begins to gradually deteriorate as he starts to buff up, get a mohawk, stockpile guns and talk to himself in the mirror. His violent plans soon become mixed up in his new friendship with teenage sex worker Iris (Jodie Foster) and madness ensues.

Why You Should See This Film

Easily one of De Niro's most iconic roles, Travis Bickle is a creep of character who you'll never forget. Likewise Foster's (disturbingly fashion-forward) Iris. Taxi Driver won the Palme d'Or at Cannes in 1976, and was nominated for four Academy Awards. Shocking and unforgettably violent, this one's rated R18+ for a reason!
