Taxi Driver
1976
*****
Director: Martin Scorsese
Cast: Robert De Niro, Harvey Keitel, Jodie Foster, Cybill Shepherd, Peter Boyle

Robert De Niro is phenomenal as Travis Bickle, God’s Lonely Man, an insomniac taxi driver who is becoming increasingly disconnected from the world around him. This mesmerising, violent and controversial study of loneliness was scripted by Paul Schrader and it remains one of Scorsese’s most accomplished films. Bernard Herrmann’s final score is great.
