Martin Scorsese's 1976 masterpiece - 'Taxi Driver' is more important in 2019 than ever. Travis Bickle is a cab driver in NYC. He's also an insomniac and a loner, who watches porn off broadway when he can't sleep. He is not someone you'd want to know. Robert De Niro's inspired work vibes heavily with Paul Schrader's script capturing the very soul of this character. He's fascinating to watch, often anxious, daydreaming, confident. Scorsese captures New York city like it's both a dream and a nightmare. Dipping in and out of Bickle's ever slipping conscious. Creating a visceral experience that's hard to look away from. It's importance in 2019 can be summed up by 'Joker,' which in many ways reincarnates Travis Bickle.
