Taxi Driver

Year: 1976
Studio: Columbia
Director: Martin Scorsese
Producer: Michael Phillips/Julia Phillips
Writer: Paul Schrader
Cast: Robert De Niro, Cybil Sheperd
Has the curious and unfortunate quality of being a movie before my time, which I heard so much about before seeing. Everything therefore, that was so revolutionary and groundbreaking that fans and film makers loved about it (and have been emulating and paying homage to for years), I've seen a hundred times since done better. It's not easy to see why Bickle falls down into a pit of despair that leads to the final acts apart from Sheperd rejecting his advances, but the cinematography is moody enough and both De Niro and Scorsese do the best they can with the script they had.
