Description

An alienated, battle-scarred loner embarks on a mission of misguided revenge in the seedy underbelly of night-time Manhattan.

Swathed in biblical allusion, Martin Scorsese's seminal Vietnam vet freak-out movie made a star of Robert De Niro and improbably turned Calvinist screenwriter Paul Schrader into the hottest screenwriter in America for a short time. It received four Academy Award nominations (including Best Picture) and won the Golden Palm Award at the Cannes Film Festival. “You talkin' to me?”
