Taxi Driver

Culver City, CA: Columbia Pictures, 1976. Vintage studio still photograph from the 1976 film, showing actor Robert De Niro leaning against a cigarette machine.

A film that would prove to be the turning point in the careers of director Martin Scorsese, screenwriter Paul Schrader, and actors Robert De Niro 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. Nominated for four Academy Awards including Best Picture.
