Film Series: Taxi Driver

1976. USA. Dir: Martin Scorsese. With Robert De Niro, Jodie Foster. 113 min.

A portrait of the psychotic Vietnam-veteran-cum-vigilante as a young man: De Niro embodies the lonely, urban rage of a generation as he drifts through the hellish Manhattan streets in search of a higher purpose. Twelve-year-old Foster more than holds her own as a streetwise prostitute, and Marty himself pops by for a disturbing cameo.

Film Series: Cape Fear

1991. USA. Dir: Martin Scorsese. With Robert De Niro, Nick Nolte. 127 min. 

Decades before The Wolf of Wall Street, Marty went nuts with a predator of a different stripe: a psychopathic ex-con out to systematically destroy the defender who failed him. A tattooed, muscular De Niro oozes menacing sleaze, his performance perfectly tuned to an over-the-top style that’s part horror flick, part social satire, and part Hitchcock homage.
