And The Winner Isn’t … Podcast: Taxi Driver (1976)


Season 1 Episode 1 – Taxi Driver (1976)

Dan and Marie explore the films which were nominated in the Oscar Best Picture category and which could possibly have won … but didn’t.

We take it in turns to pick a film, then discuss whether we think things have changed for that movie now, or if the original decision still stands; was it a deserving winner, or something only of its time?

Marie got the ball rolling this time around and selected 1976’s Taxi Driver, Martin Scorsese’s delve into the mind of a psychopathic Travis Bickle, who is hell-bent on cleaning up the mess and scum of New York City all on his own, and in doing so saving a young Jodie Foster from a life on the streets. What a hero.

Join us to see whether we can reach any kind of agreement with the 49th Academy Awards, which handed over the Best Picture award to one of Dan’s favourite films – Rocky! Dan also name drops a couple of celebrity meet ups he’s had in the past, which may or may not have influenced his thoughts.
