"I’d imagine the whole world was one big machine. Machines never come with any extra parts, you know. They always come with the exact amount they need. So I figured, if the entire world was one big machine, I couldn’t be an extra part. I had to be here for some reason. And that means you have to be here for some reason, too."

Hugo (2011, dir. Martin Scorsese)

"…both are places for people to come together and share a common experience, and i believe there’s a spirituality in films, even if it’s not one which can supplant faith. i find that over the years many films address themselves to the spiritual side of man’s nature - from griffith’s film intolerance to john ford’s the grapes of wrath, to hitchcock’s vertigo, to kubrick’s 2001 and so many more. it’s as if movies answer an ancient quest for the common unconscious. they fulfill a spiritual need that people have to share a common memory.” - martin scorsese, a personal journey with martin scorsese through american movies

Art Of The Title: Taxi Driver (1976) by Dan Perri

One of the purpose for creating a title design is  to tease the audience, what are they going to see for the next 2 hours? Hopefully, those first minutes makes them glued to the their seat and enjoy the adrenaline rush before the movie starts.

For Dan Perri’s design in Taxi Driver, we see the world of Travis Bickle through his own eyes as he observes the city streets in New york. This provides an insight into Travis mind and his relationship with the city. Then we hear Bernard Herrman’s iconic saxophone medley theme song to support the melancholy mood, and it just fits perfectly. Also, the use of beautiful vibrant colors contrast with a night scenery. The title design is haunting and beautiful, and somehow you can help but think “okay, what the hell am I getting myself into?” you can almost hear Scorsese replying,”Oh you have no idea.”
