Of all the Martin Scorsese films to dance across the silver screen, 1976s gritty drama Taxi Driver stands out as one of, possibly the, best movies of the directors career thus far. Nominated for Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Original Score, Taxi Driver was a triumph in the world of cinematic arta highly acclaimed film filled with the kind of subject matter that could turned a censors hair white. Robert DeNiro played a deranged cab driver who, disgusted by the low-lifes he chauffeurs, decides to murder a Senatorbut not before befriending a child prostitute. A special screening of this very special film will be shown at the Marion Knott Studios in Orange, complete with a question-and-answer session by an incredibly special guest: Harry Ufland, a producer and agent who represented both Scorsese and DeNiro.
