TAXI DRIVER by Anthea Slade


TAXI DRIVER UPCLOSE by Anthea Slade

Vietnam vet, Travis Bickle (Robert De Niro) leads a emotionally numb, lonely life as a night-shift cabbie in New York. He roves the streets, killing time by writing in a diary, popping pills and hanging out at porn theatres. His life takes a radical turn after a chance meeting with a 14 year old prostitute (Jodie Foster) and a series of frustrating events and he decides to clean up the sordid milieu of his world. His relationship to Jodie Foster is sensitive and heart touching and re-alights in Travis a protective responsibility towards the vulnerable teenager reawakening his own morality. His answer is no holds-barred violence.

One of the most intensely powerful and emotionally provocative films of all times TAXI DRIVER is a tour de force of raw emotion and painful suspense. Robert De Niro delivers a powerhouse performance as Travis and the film is directed by the great Martin Scorsese.

Creating art and writing is like breathing to me, it keeps me alive. If I stop creating my world shrinks and contracts. When I start to create again it expands and is filled with colour. I feel whole. To create is to be completely, unabashedly alive.
