Rachel Wald Media Taxi Driver Martin Scorceses Taxi Driver starring Robert Dinero Harvey Keitel Jodie Foster and Cybill Shepard is quite possibly one of the darkest but best movies of all time The movie follows the path of Deniros character Travis Bickle on his life as a lonely insomniac who is basically isolated from society as whole He applies for a job as taxi driver due to his insomnia and this career choice leads him on several interesting ventures Due to his job he comes across a beautiful young girl names Betsy Cybill Shepard and is instantly attracted to her He burst into her office where she is volunteering for Senator Palantine and boldly asks her out on a date He tells her what he thinks which is the honest truth that she is a lonely unhappy woman even though many people surround her He ends up ruining this relationship by taking her to a porno film for which she doesnt forgive him From that point on begins Travis spiral into depression and loneliness he ends up buying a gun and plans to kill Senator Palantine he resorts to the streets filled with prostitutes and makes an unlikely friend with a child prostitute named Iris His unhealthy attachment to Iris causes him to desperately want to help her This want to help her results in Travis killing several people at the end and ironically being considered a hero In my opinion although Taxi Driver is dark and gruesome it brings out some characteristics of a spectacular movie Deniros performance alone could make it one of the best movies of all time Therefore Taxi Driver included great direction great performances and a great storyline It is one of the best movies of all time
