One of the greatest actors of all time, Robert De Niro is famous for his acting in films such as Mean Streets (1973), The Godfather: Part II (1974), Taxi Driver (1976), The Deer Hunter (1978) and Raging Bull (1980).
In Taxi Driver, Travis Bickle is a man suffering from serious insomnia. Psychologically trapped in a post-Vietnam world, his taxi cruises around the dingy New York streets for passengers until early hours of the morning. With an attitude to rival any high-strung boxer, days and nights are blurring into one, with no escape seemingly possible. With his thoughts turning to violence, can there be an escape? After becoming infatuated with a local voluntary campaign worker and saving a prostitute from a local abusive pimp, does the future hold anything good for this one man wrecking machine?
Martin Scorsese's 1976 classic, 'Taxi Driver' dumbfounded audiences when first released and still baffles critics and audiences worldwide with its subject matter and overly cryptic ending.
