Taxi Driver

The seminal 1976 Scorsese/De Niro flick. Paul Schrader's script surveys Manhattan through the eyes of an insomniac, sleaze-obsessed Vietnam vet. Scorsese pours a century of cinema into his vision of urban inferno and De Niro's Travis Bickle forever cruises the avenues of our imaginations, a psychopath as tender, lonely and deranged as Psycho's Norman Bates, but so much more real.

You may want to argue with Taxi Driver at the end, and with good reason, but it won't be a waste of time.

The blend of Schrader's script, Scorsese's direction and De Niro's performance is both riveting and unnerving. A film that will stay with you forever.
