A film by Martin Scorsese
Taxi Driver (1976)
Director: Martin Scorsese
Screenplay: Paul Schrader
Cinematography: Michael Chapman
Music: Bernard Herrmann.
"This deeply disturbing drama, which examines alienation in urban society by combining elements of film noir, the Western, and horror movies. established Martin Scorsese as a major figure in world film and made Robert De Niro a star. De Biro immerses himself in the complex character. Scorsese presents an apocalyptic view of the city, with steam hissing out of the streets, incessant traffic noise, and wailing sirens. This is contrasted with the haunting score by Bernard Herrmann (his last).”- Ronald Bergan, The Film Book, 2011.
