Taxi Driver. 1976. USA. Directed by Martin Scorsese. 113 min.
Screenplay by Paul Schrader. Music by Bernard Herrmann. With Robert De Niro, Cybill Shepherd, Harvey Keitel, Peter Boyle, Jodie Foster. Scorsese’s nightmare vision of modern America (via New York City) seems frighteningly prescient in our current age of mad men with grievances and ostensible Second Amendment rights. One of De Niro’s signature roles, Foster’s adolescent debut, and Herrmann’s final score.
