There are movies that can be identified by a single quote. In fact, sometimes the quote is more easily identifiable than the actual movie it comes from. How many of us have said “You talkin’ to me?” without really understanding its origin or context? If you’ve ever wondered where the quote came from, Netflix has you covered this month with Taxi Driver, one of the movies heralded as the greatest of all time. It’s definitely one of the greatest new releases coming in July.

Taxi Driver stars Robert De Niro as Travis Bickle, an insomniac loner who takes a job as a cab driver in New York City. As he drives through the city streets every night, he grows more and more disturbed and detached, wishing he could clean up the city’s so-called filth. After meeting campaign worker Betsy (Cybill Shepherd), Travis obsesses over the concept of “saving the world,” with plans to kill a candidate, then save a 12-year-old prostitute named Iris (Jodie Foster).

Upon release, Taxi Driver received widespread critical acclaim and made an impressive turn at the box office, bringing in over $28 million against a meager budget of $1.9 million.

The film was nominated for four Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor for Robert De Niro, Best Supporting Actress for Jodie Foster, and Best Original Score. While it didn’t ultimately take home an Oscar, Taxi Driver has gained a legacy as one of the all-time greats, and you can check it out when it begins streaming on Netflix at the top of July.
