SYNOPSIS

Based on an original screenplay by Paul Schrader, Taxi Driver is a dark rumination centering on one man, driven to violence by loneliness and desperation. Starring Robert De Niro and Jodie Foster, the film was nominated for four Academy Awards (including Best Picture) in 1977, and was the winner of Cannes International Film Festival's Golden Palm Award 1976. The iconic imagery — De Niro with the gun and the mirror, Foster as a child prostitute in hot pants, and the yellow cab, gliding through the streets of New York to Bernard Herrmann's pulsating score — have been brought back to its former glory, thanks to an extensive, full 4K digital restoration under the supervision of Grover Crisp of Sony Pictures.
