Taxi Driver

Culver City, CA: Mitchell J. Hamilburg Agency / Columbia Pictures, 1976. Vintage studio still photograph from the 1976 film.

A film that would prove to be the turning point in the careers of director Martin Scorsese, screenwriter Paul Schrader, and actors Robert DeNiro and Jodie Foster, and one that has only gained significance with the passage of time. Exhibiting elements of both American experimental filmmaking and vanguard European narrative, and a perfect example of American neo-noir, drawing influences from Bresson, Antonioni, Godard, Hitchcock, Lang, and Malle.

Set in New York City and shot on location there.

8 x 10 inches. Very Good plus, with light wear to the top margin.
