In an effort to combat his growing insomnia, traumatized Vietnam War vet Travis Bickle (Robert DeNiro) takes a job as a cab driver in New York City. Navigating the unforgiving street culture of the metropolis ravages his mental state, deluding Travis into seeing himself as the crime-plagued city’s savior, free to dispense deadly justice to whomever he deems guilty. Matching DeNiro’s star performance is an extraordinary supporting cast led by Jodie Foster, Harvey Keitel, Peter Boyle and Albert Brooks all along for the ride under the superb direction of Martin Scorsese.
