Filmstill Taxi Driver

The loner taxi driver and Vietnam veteran Travis Bickle moves restlessly through New York at night. Equally fascinated and repelled by the city, he becomes more and more obsessed with feeling the need to do something about the dirt and lowliness of his environment. The psychological study describes the individual outbreak of violence against the background of a general climate of indifference and was the big breakthrough for Martin Scorsese, screenwriter Paul Schrader and Robert De Niro.
