Taxi Driver is a 1976 film starring Robert De Niro. It was directed by Martin Scorsese and written by Paul Schrader. Set in early post-Vietnam Era New York City, De Niro plays Travis Bickle, a lonely, isolated taxi driver and Jodie Foster the teenage prostitute he attempts to save. Paul Schrader has cited Notes From the Underground as an influence when he wrote the screenplay for the film's existential themes. The film quotes Dostoevsky in the line: "I'm God's lonely man."
