The Synopsis for Taxi Driver (1976) 720p

Travis Bickle is an ex-Marine and Vietnam War veteran living in New York City. As he suffers from insomnia, he spends his time working as a cabbie at night, watching porn movies at seedy cinemas during the day, or thinking about how the world, New York in particular, has deteriorated into a cesspool. He's a loner who has strong opinions about what is right and wrong with mankind. For Travis, the one bright spot in New York humanity is Betsy, a worker on the presidential nomination campaign of Senator Charles Palatine. Travis becomes obsessed with Betsy. After an incident with Betsy, Travis believes he has to do whatever he needs to to make the world a better place in his opinion. One of his priorities is to be the savior for Iris, a twelve year old runaway and prostitute who he believes wants out of the profession and under the thumb of her pimp and lover Matthew.

So much has been written and talked about 'Taxi Driver' that it seems almostredundant to add anything more. But watching it again the other night forthe nth time I was, as I have been every single time I've seen it, struck byjust how perfect this movie is. It is as powerful and disturbing now as itwas twenty-five years ago. It has not only NOT aged, it gets better and morerelevant every year. This is without doubt a modern classic, and one of thehandful of truly great, timeless movies.

Scorsese and Schrader went on to make other great movies after this, bothseparately ('The King Of Comedy', 'Light Sleeper') and together ('RagingBull', 'The Last Temptation Of Christ'), but this is easily the best movieof their careers. And Robert De Niro's too. He has yet to top his stunningperformance here as the deeply disturbed and alienated Vietnam veteranTravis Bickle, cabbie and would be assassin. This character has notsurprisingly entered movie legend.

Scorsese surrounds De Niro with a first rate supporting cast, includingsmall but effective roles from Harvey Keitel ('Reservoir Dogs'), Peter Boyle('Hardcore'), the underrated Victor Argo ('The King Of New York') and JoeSpinell ('Maniac'). Albert Brooks and Jodie Foster are also very good, andeven Cybil Shepherd, the butt of many jokes, is fine as Bickle's obsession.

When you combine these actors, Schrader's outstanding script, and Scorsese'sbrilliant direction, with the stunning cinematography (Michael Chapman) andhaunting score (Hitchcock fave Bernard Herrmann's final effort), you haveyourself a truly unforgettable cinematic experience. If you haven't seen'Taxi Driver' I urge you to do so immediately. It is a masterpiece, pure andsimple.

The script of "Taxi Driver" is built like a diary, the diary of a veryordinary guy who gets hired as a night taxi driver back from Vietnam,because he can't sleep at night. A very ordinary guy who tries to breakhis isolation, but can't, while violence accumulates inside him. One ofthose unnoticed people with dark things on their mind, one of those whobreak up the news one day with some extraordinary outburst of rage, tofall back immediately into anonymity.

The gradual transformation of man into beast in this movie is chilling.It's still funny and pathetic when the hero threatens himself in frontof the mirror ("you're talking to me?"), but when he comes out with amohawk hairdo and dark glasses, it is obvious that nasty stuff is goingto take place. As in "A Clockwork Orange", violence is recuperated bysociety depending on what purpose it is used for. Whereas he was aboutto murder the candidate for presidency, "god's lonely man" fails andinstead kills a vicious pimp who exploits teenage prostitutes. Thepotential criminal becomes a hero for a day.

Such stories happen everywhere of course, but it seems that thebewildering atmosphere of New York City's summer night was the bestchoice. "Taxi Driver" gives us a very realistic approach of New York,in a way that is not seen on screen so often, at least not anymore,whilst that city is probably the one in the world that has been filmedthe biggest number of times.

Most of the movie takes place at night. The credits open on the blazinglights of the yellow taxi cab moving slowly in the dark rainy streets.A kaleidoscope of neonlight appears through the dripping windows as thedriver's eyes blink in the front mirror. The night is the hero'suniverse, it's the time when "all the animals come out", as he says. Bycontrast, the few daylight scenes look somewhat off-key, but this wasdefinitely intentional.

The final scene still appears today as extremely violent, but at least,it shows murder for what it is. Brutal, ugly, crude. It is somethingone tends to forget about after seeing so many police series wherepeople get shot so often that it gets casual. Real violence is notcasual when you face it, and here is a film that makes you face it.

The directing is first class and deservedly made path for Scorsese as aworld renowned artist. Some techniques he used here are unusual forAmerican cinema, like focusing on details for a few seconds. The movieis enhanced by an excellent music soundtrack by jazz composer BernardHerrman who died before the picture was even released.

Two of the actors also deservedly made it to stardom. Robert de Niroplays a very unglamorous character, but his presence on screen is sointense that it's no wonder it made such an impression. As for JodieFoster, she already appeared in films as a child, but playing a teenageprostitute was certainly not an easy challenge, and probably it wasthat role that really turned her into a major actress.

"Taxi Driver" was a big hit when it came out, both for the public andthe critics. It won the Palme d'Or in Cannes, and served as a trendsetter for many later films, like for instance Quentin Tarantino's andAbel Ferrara's. But even today, the original model seems difficult toemulate, probably because achieving a masterpiece is a rare thing, bydefinition.
