Martin Scorsese directs Paul Schrader’s searing script about alienation and desperation, following a shattered Vietnam Vet haunting the neon-lit streets of seedy ‘70s NYC as a nightshift Taxi Driver as he hurtles towards his imagined destiny. The gritty and hard-hitting masterpiece features an all-time great performance from Robert De Niro and scored the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival for the director.

“No other film has ever dramatized urban indifference so powerfully; at first, here, it’s horrifyingly funny, and then just horrifying.” – Pauline Kael, New Yorker

“Martin Scorsese’s 1976 film [Taxi Driver] is a film that does not grow dated, or over-familiar. I have seen it dozens of times. Every time I see it, it works; I am drawn into Travis’ underworld of alienation, loneliness, haplessness and anger.” – Roger Ebert
