Taxi Driver is a psychological thriller and drama film which explores the themes of vigilantism,obsession, loneliness and depression through the psychotic exploits of Travis Bickle, a former US Marine who works as a taxi driver in New York.

Robert de Niro, in one of his greatest performances, slips into the skin of the sociopath,insomniac and depressed Travis, who after being disgusted with the rampant crime in New York, takes it upon himself to “clean up the city” .

Violent, disturbing and brilliantly directed, Taxi Driver ranks among the greatest films of all time. It won the Palme D’Or at the Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for four Academy Awards,including Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress for Jodie Foster and Best Original Score.
