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: The Godfather: Part II

1974. USA. Dir: Francis Ford Coppola. With Al Pacino, Robert De Niro. 200 min.

Our opener is no mere sequel, but a self-contained tale of corruption, betrayal, and lost humanity even more ambitious and devastating than its predecessor. Coppola revisits the Corleone family, intertwining Michael’s ruthless expansion of the business with Vito’s inevitable rise from immigrant to Godfather.
