Director Martin Scorsese's "savage, many-headed dragon of the American New Wave" (Michael Atkinson, The Village Voice) is still as potent as ever. Cabbie Travis Bickle (Robert De Niro's seminal pistol-packing, insomniac loner) drives through the open sewer that is mid-1970s Manhattan with its pimps (Harvey Keitel), hookers (Jodie Foster), politicos (Cybill Shepherd and Albert Brooks) and other scummy creatures of the neon wilderness. With a ferocious script by Paul Schrader.
In one of his earliest and most chilling roles, Terrence Stamp stars as Freddie Clegg, a low-life bank clerk with a penchant for collecting butterflies. Freddie’s hobby transforms into obsession and spirals out of control when his collection expands to include females… of the human species! Featuring Samantha Eggar in an outstanding performance. Based on John Fowles’ best-selling novel.
