Disturbed Vietnam vet Travis Bickle (Robert de Niro) attempts to deal with insomnia by working as a New York taxi driver, but his new career only serves to expose him to the bleak and dirty underbelly of the city, and alienate him further.

When a child prostitute (Jodie Foster) jumps into his cab to escape her pimp, he is sickened by the company she keeps and believes he can save her. When Travis watches an attractive woman (Cybill Shepherd) flirting with a colleague, he imagines he'll be able to form a relationship with her too, but is frustrated to find he is unable to connect. As Bickle becomes more dissociated, his paranoid delusions lead him to realise his own fantasy that "someday a real rain will come and wash all this scum off the streets"...

With stunning cinematography showcasing New York at its most decadent, and Bernard Herrmann's score mixing drawling sleaze, romantic jazz and military beats, this "terrifying portrait of life on the edge of madness" deserves to be seen on the big screen.
