Retro Movie Review: ‘Taxi Driver’ 40th Anniversary Screening – Fathom Events
  |  @   |  

Fathoms Events and Sony Pictures presents a chance to see one of the greatest and craziest films of all time, Martin Scorsese‘s Taxi Driver in U.S. theaters again this week. Celebrating the film’s 40th anniversary, Taxi Driver drives back to cinemas for only one more day, Wednesday, October 19th. I got a chance to go to a showing on Sunday in New York City. I’d argue the real star of the film is New York City itself. The city pulses throughout; the filth and degradation of the 1970s feels hundreds of years removed, not a mere 40.

Taxi Driver features the definition of “all-star cast,” headlined by Oscar-winner Robert De Niro as the film’s notorious anti-hero Travis Bickle. Joining him are future two-time Oscar-winner Jodie Foster, who was 14 when the movie debuted in 1976. Cybill Shepherd, Albert Brooks, Peter Boyle, and Harvey Keitel round out the cast. The film was nominated for four Academy Awards including Best Picture, Actor (De Niro), Supporting Actress (Foster), and Score (the amazing Bernard Herrmann).
