Summary

Taxi Driver is one of the major films of the 1970s, which established Martin Scorcese's reputation as a prominent American director. Robert de Niro plays Travis Bickle, Vietnam veteran and cab driver, who finally goes over the edge. Technically thrilling though it is, 'Taxi Driver' is profoundly disturbing - finding - as Amy Taubin shows, racism, misogyny and gun fetishism at the heart of American culture. This new edition of Taubin's study is published in the Film Classics 20th anniversary series of special editions, with a new foreword by Amy Taubin, and a stunning new jacket design by Mark Atkins.
