Perhaps Martin Scorcesse’ most accomplished work, this gripping story of a psychotic taxi driver who is compelled to protect a young prostitute and impress a beautiful political volunteer, uses violence as an act of love. It’s the movie that put writer Paul Schrader on the map, and seizes American film noir in the dreamy, sometimes nightmarish landscape of 1970’s New York. (dir. Martin Scorsese,U.S. 1976, 114 min.) 

“Forty years on, Taxi Driver remains almost impossibly perfect: it’s hard to think of another film that creates and sustains such a unique, evocative tone, of dread blended with pity, loathing, savage humour and a scuzzy edge of New York cool.” – Time Out
