Product Description
The following seven-page study guide film packet is used to accompany the Martin Scorsese-directed 1976 neo noir vigilante drama "Taxi Driver," which stars Robert De Niro, Jodie Foster, Harvey Keitel, Cybil Shepherd, and Al Brooks. It can be used in an English, film studies, or media studies classroom. The first page contains a list of cast and crew and a background and introduction on the film. The second page encourages students to take their own notes while watching the film via Cornell note-taking formatting. Pages three, four, five, and six contain comprehension questions to guide the viewer on the work's allusions, camera movement, indirect characterization, cinematography, costume design, editing, irony, mise en scene, sound, story, style, symbolism, and themes. The seventh page contains discussion questions on the work's characterization, sociocultural context, sound, and themes.

The film is a haunting work that explores alienation and isolation in an urban society; the film pairs well in terms of characterization and themes with J.D. Salinger's coming of age novel "The Catcher in the Rye."
