Taxi Driver

Isolated ex-marine Travis Bickle applies for a job as a taxi driver, hoping that the nocturnal working pattern will alleviate the effects of his insomnia and distract him from his gnawing depression. But ferrying passengers through the seedy underbelly of night-time New York City only compounds Bickle’s psychological dislocation from the world around him. He withdraws into himself, hordes illegal firearms and begins a regimen of intense physical training in preparation for a misguided vigilante assault on the evils of society.

USA 1976, 114 min, Dir: Martin Scorsese
