A wholly remarkable film

The Guardian

You talkin’ to me? One of the greatest American movies ever made, Martin Scorsese’s classic returns to the big screen.

Robert De Niro plays Travis Bickle, an alienated Vietnam Vet with some serious opinions about what is right and wrong with the world. Travis becomes obsessed with the idea of making the world a better place in his opinion and embarks on a mission of revenge in the seedy underbelly of nighttime Manhattan.

As powerful and painful as ever, this incredible film is an absolute master work featuring stunning performances from De Niro and a very young Jodie Foster, an amazing score from legendary composer Bernard Hermann (Psycho) and a sublime script from Paul Schrader (Raging Bull).

Screening as part of the BFI's celebration of Martin Scorsese, don't miss Goodfellas screening from Fri 27 Jan.

Director(s): Martin Scorsese   Country of Origin: United States  Year: 1976   Running Time: 1hr 43 mins
