Scorcese’s breakout film is a haunting atmospheric masterpiece. Robert DeNiro gives a searing performance as Travis Bickle, with a stunning Cybil Shepherd as his love interest, with a teenage Jodie Foster in her most compelling performance. Scorcese’s New York is steaming city streets bathed in neon light, alternating graceful and frenetic camera moves, all pulsing to Bernard Hermann’s lush and dangerous score. Rated R.
