Editor's note

Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver plunges into the dark, lonely life of Travis Bickle, a Vietnam War veteran turned taxi driver in New York City, whose disdain for the city's degradation leads him on a violent quest for redemption. The film is a stark portrayal of isolation, alienation, and the struggle for connection in an indifferent world.
