Original Vintage Movie Posters @ Film/Art Gallery

Welcome to the official Film/Art Gallery collection of the vintage original Taxi Driver posters, where we provide a substantial choice of artwork for the classic film.

Taxi Driver is an American neo-noir psychological thriller crime drama film, released in 1976. It was directed by Scorsese and written by Paul Schrader. Robert De Niro starred as the main character along with Jodie Foster, Cybill Shepherd, Harvey Keitel, Peter Boyle, Leonard Harris, and Albert Brooks. The movie set was decorated as a decaying and morally bankrupt New York City following the Vietnam War. The film tells the story of Travis Bickle,  an ex-Marine and Vietnam War veteran living in New York. Bickle suffers from insomnia, so he spends his time working as a taxi driver in the night, watching porn movies during the day, or brooding about how the planet, New York City especially, has deteriorated into a cesspool. He is a lonely person with strong opinions about what's right and wrong with mankind. For him, Betsy, a worker on the presidential nomination campaign of Senator Charles Palantine, is the one bright spot in humanity. He becomes obsessed with her. And the story goes on...

Taxi Driver received both critical and commercial success upon release and it was also nominated for four Academy Awards. The film won the Palme d'Or at the 1976 Cannes festival. However, the film also generated controversy at the time of its release for its depiction of violence and casting of a 12-year-old Foster in the role of a young prostitute.

In 2012, Sight & Sound named it the 31st Best Film Ever in its decennial critics' poll, ranked with The Godfather Part II, making Taxi Driver the fifth-greatest film of all time on its directors' poll list. The film was considered "culturally, historically or aesthetically" significant by the US Library of Congress and was selected for preservation within the National Film Registry in 1994.
