Martin Scorsese
Robert DeNiro, Jodie Foster

Martin Scorsese’s classic vision of the New York underworld follows a taxi driver (De Niro) who goes on a rampage when he blows his chance with a beautiful socialite and fails to save a child prostitute (Foster) from the streets. “Taxi Driver is at once a thriller, a psychological case study, an exploration of the eroticism of violence, a political comment, a horror melodrama and a bizarre travelogue of seamy New York...Taxi Driver rocks the screen.” (New York Post)
