“Taxi Driver” is a classic, but you already knew that. Martin Scorsese‘s legendary film turns forty this year, and Sony Pictures is rolling out the red carpet with a new 40th Anniversary Edition of the movie on Blu-ray. If you don’t have “Taxi Driver” in your collection, or haven’t seen it, now’s the time, and we’re going to make things a bit easier for some lucky readers to do just that.
Starring Robert De Niro in one his career defining performances, along with Jodie Foster, Albert Brooks, Harvey Keitel, Peter Boyle and Cybill Shepherd, the film follows Vietnam veteran Travis Bickle who is driven to loneliness and violence as he cruises the gritty streets of New York City. It’s a terrific film about a damaged psyche and a window into New York City that isn’t there anymore. And among the plethora of extra features on the Blu-ray, there’s a Q&A with the film’s cast and crew, recorded at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival, and below you can see an exclusive clip with Harvey Keitel sharing the memorable story of his first meeting with Martin Scorsese.
