Taxi Driver PDF ePub eBook

Taxi Driver free pdf This title features previously unseen photographs from one of cinema's greatest movies. Excoriated by large sections of the press on its release in 1976, "Time" magazine bemoaned its 'thoroughly depressing realism', "Taxi Driver" which has long been regarded as a cinematic milestone, and Robert DeNiro's portrait of a near-psychotic loner gunman acknowledged as one of the greatest performances ever filmed. Even "Time" has since come around, and now includes the film in its list of 100 Greatest Movies, saying: 'The power of Scorsese's filmmaking grows ever more punishing with the passage of time.' Steve Schapiro was the special photographer on the set of "Taxi Driver", the movie that made Robert DeNiro a star: and 95 per cent of his photos were never published - until now. This edition is limited to 1000 copies, numbered and signed by Steve Schapiro, and includes a foreword by Martin Scorsese. According to unit photographer Steve Schapiro, Robert DeNiro didn't like to be photographed, but put up with it. 'DeNiro is easy on screen, but off screen he is shy and embarrassed when photographed and always had a goofy smile.' Nonetheless, Schapiro's photography immortalized the young actor in one of his finest and most powerful roles. This book features hundreds of images selected from Schapiro's "Taxi Driver" archive, 95 per cent of which have never previously been published. This title includes a foreword by Martin Scorsese! It is also available in two Art Editions of 100 copies each, with a signed and numbered original photographic print.
