From the Film Institute at Montclair State University, Montclair, NJ:
This four-part screening and lecture series offers a tour of New York City where filmmaker Martin Scorsese was born, raised, and began his career. Each film is set in a singular, and for Scorsese, significant neighborhood. Hosted by film critic and author, Stephen Whitty Sundays with Scorsese is FREE and open to the general public.
Suffering from insomnia, loner Travis Bickle (Robert DeNiro) takes a job as a New York City cabbie, haunting the streets nightly, growing increasingly detached from reality as he dreams of cleaning up the filthy city. Taxi Driver was nominated for the Best Picture Academy Award; DeNiro and Jodie Foster were also nominated.
Sundays with Scorsese is presented as part of the Linda And George Hiltzik Screening Series.
