Plot Summary

Considered among the best films of all time, Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver was nominated for Academy Awards® for Best Picture, Best Actor (Robert De Niro), Best Supporting Actress (Jodie Foster) and Best Original Score (Bernard Herrmann). Solitary, alienated, and emotionally scarred from Vietnam, taxi driver Travis Bickle (De Niro) works the night shift in Manhattan.Though the world around him is teeming with life, Travis is unable to connect with anyone. His date with Betsy (Cybill Shepherd), a beautiful campaign aide, fails when he takes her to a porno movie. He tries to save a 12-year-old prostitute, Iris (Foster), from her pimp, Sport (Harvey Keitel) - though it's unclear Iris wants to be saved. Travis's pent-up anger and misplaced loyalty finally boil over in a paroxysm of revenge and violence.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: You may want to argue with Taxi Driver at the end, and with good reason, but it won't be a waste of time. – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: It's a powerful film and a terrific showcase for the versatility of star Robert De Niro. – A.D. Murphy, Variety, Apr 29, 2013

Fresh: Like Werner Herzog's Aguirre or Coppola's Apocalypse Now, Taxi Driver is auteurist psychodrama. – J. Hoberman, Village Voice, Mar 15, 2011

Fresh: Martin Scorsese's history-making scald is truly a phenomenon from another day and age. Which is to say, imagine a like-minded film of this decade killing at the box office and getting nommed for Best Picture. – Michael Atkinson, Village Voice, Aug 19, 2005

Great

Taxi driver is a brilliantly film by it's amazing director Martin Scorsese and the awesome cast, who each do their parts Oscar worthy. Yes! This is the movie that should have won best picture instead of Rocky! I mean Robert de Niro indeed deserved that Oscar as well Martin Scorsese for best director. No doubt one of the top 5 best films ever made!

A must watch for any generation

How can you not watch a Scorsese film over and over? One of the greatest movies of all time that will hold up forever. Not a moment that isn't full of brilliant acting by the entire cast.

Best movie EVER.
