You talkin' to ME?'; undeniably one of the most famous quotes from movie history and from one of its most memorable characters. Travis Bickle, the frustrated Vietnam veteran in 'Taxi Driver'; the lonely nut obsessed with sex and violence who takes a job as a cabbie to battle his insomnia. Robert De Niro's legendary performance ensured that this Scorcese classic ended up on many of the 'best movie of all time' lists. BERNARD HERRMANN's score is comprised primarily of a brass section mixing with a saxophone theme. The music swings back and forth, to amplify Travis' deteriorating mental state. Layered atop the two key components are harps, woodwinds, and even noises of the city, like a nearby drum kit or the music of a theater. It was also BERNARD HERRMANN's last ever soundtrack. He died just a few hours after completing the score. Like no other he composed a dark and threatening atmosphere that drags you into Bickle's twisted mind.
