Taxi Driver

Wednesday, October 4, 2017

Part of the Six Week Film School series, "From ALICE to SILENCE - The Scorsese Style," curated by William Thomas McBride. Suffering from insomnia, disturbed loner Travis Bickle (Robert De Niro) takes a job as a New York City cabbie, haunting the streets nightly, growing increasingly detached from reality as he dreams of cleaning up the filthy city. When Travis meets pretty campaign worker Betsy (Cybill Shepherd), he becomes obsessed with the idea of saving the world, first plotting to assassinate a presidential candidate, then directing his attentions toward rescuing 12-year-old prostitute Iris (Jodie Foster). 1976 / R / 114 min.
