A loner, Travis Bickle takes up driving a taxi in search of an escape from his sleeplessness and his disgust with the corruption he finds around him. His pent-up rage, fuelled by his doomed relationship with the political campaign worker Betsy, leads to an inevitable descent into psychosis and violence.
This volume also contains an extended interview between Schrader and Martin Scorsese in which they discuss their unique relationship-one which stretches from Taxi Driver through Raging Bull to The Last Temptation of Christ.
