Renowned Filmmaker Michel Gondry Shoots A Comical Remake Of Taxi Driver
Award-winning director creates a low-budget version of Martin Scorsese's classic thriller.
Academy Award winning French filmmaker, Michel Gondry, has recreated Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver, a psychological thriller film released in 1976. The ‘sweded’ version condenses the plot into a three-minute, low-budget mini-film. The original Taxi Driver contained extreme violence and references to drugs and prostitution. However, Gondry’s version is more comical and even kid-friendly where blood splatters are replaced with colorful paint, while bullets are shown as coloring pencils.
