Travis Bickle is an insomniac ex-marine who works the night shift as a taxi driver in 1970s New York. Chronically lonely and socially inept, he attempts to woo a pretty presidential campaign worker, but his misguided ideas about romance fall flat. Increasingly paranoid, Bickle fancies himself as the decaying city's saviour, culminating in a political assassination plot and the voilent 'rescue' of a child prostitute. A searing portrait of psychosis from director Martin Scorcese and screenwriter Paul Schrader.
