A taxi driver is a person who knows the nook and corner of the city and the things that happen there. Travis Bickle is an honorably discharged U.S. Marine who becomes a taxi driver to cope with his chronic insomnia. He can't stand the street crime and prostitution that he witnesses when he drives around the city. As days go by his frustration and anger pushes him to take extreme measures. Will he be able to the quench his thirst for justice? That you'll have to find out after watching the movie. Robert De Niro plays the role of Travis Bickle who thinks the world is a gutter and needs to be cleaned. The character requires a rebellious attitude and De Niro portrays that attitude with ease. The cinematography shows us the different shades of the city brilliantly. Martin Scorsese's direction is brilliant as usual.
