DIGITAL CINEMA PRESENTATION
"You talkin' to me?" Robert De Niro is riveting as the iconic Travis Bickle, the anti-hero and eponymous taxi driver in this, Martin Scorsese's instantly acknowledged masterpiece. Influenced by Godard, shot during a heat wave and garbage strike in New York, perhaps no film captures the look, feel, and utter despair of urban living in that aggrieved decade. An incredible cast that included Jodie Foster and Peter Boyle, a score by Bernard Herrmann, and cinematographer Michael Chapman's inventive photography (using available light in Yellow Cab), Taxi Driver is an experience that you will never forget. Winner of the 1976 Palme d'Or at the 1976 Cannes Film Festival, Taxi Driver
Presented by The Heights Theater and The Trylon Cinema.
