Taxi Driver turns 40. Watch the 40th Anniversary trailer


You talkin’ to me?

An alienated, battle-scarred loner embarks on a mission of misguided revenge in the seedy underbelly of night-time Manhattan. Swathed in biblical allusion, Martin Scorsese’s seminal Vietnam vet freak-out movie made a star of Robert De Niro and improbably turned Calvinist screenwriter Paul Schrader into the hottest screenwriter in America for a short time. It received four Academy Award nominations (including Best Picture) and won the Golden Palm Award at the Cannes Film Festival.

The film also stars Jodie Foster, Harvey Keitel, Cybill Shepherd, Peter Boyle, and Albert Brooks.

Taxi Driver is set to get a limited re-release beginning this month in Austria and Switzerland, followed by more releases across the rest of Europe, plus Latin America and Australia, from September through to the end of the year.

The anniversary reissue will use the 2011 digital restoration of the film carried out by Sony Pictures, following a full 4K workflow from the original camera negative under the guidance of Scorsese and original cinematographer Michael Chapman.
