A landmark of 70s American cinema, Taxi Driver is an alarmingly plausible character study of Vietnam vet Travis Bickle (De Niro), an alienated insomniac who spends his nights driving a New York cab. He has nothing but contempt for the ‘scum’ he sees all around him, and becomes obsessed with ‘rescuing’ a 12-year-old runaway turned prostitute, turning himself into a one-man killing machine as he prepares for a bloody crusade. Running time: 2h14, including ads and trailers.
