40 Years Of Taxi Driver

This year marks the 40th anniversary of Taxi Driver, Martin Scorsese‘s haunting exploration of urban alienation that marks one of Robert De Niro‘s finest performances. Although the grim and gritty New York City featured in the film has become sanitized and gentrified into a playground for the wealthy in the four decades since its release, Taxi Driver remains as visceral of a viewing experience as ever. In conjunction with this milestone, The Hollywood Reporter recently published an oral history of the movie that sheds new light on its production and most iconic moments. I recommend you check you it for a glimpse behind the scenes at a true movie masterpiece.
