A defining film of the New Hollywood era, TAXI DRIVER dissects the warped mind of an increasingly disturbed NYC taxi driver, brilliantly brought to life by Robert De Niro. Featuring a breakout performance by Jodi Foster as a child prostitute and Bernard Hermann's foreboding score, TAXI DRIVER vividly captures the grit and grime of 1970s New York City. Nominated for four Academy Awards including Best Picture, TAXI DRIVER is an unnerving examination of American discontent.
Michael Phillips is a producer best known for producing such classics as THE STING (Oscar win), TAXI DRIVER (Oscar nom.), and CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND, among many others.
