06:26

It’s been 40 years since “You talkin’ to me?” became a catchphrase and “Taxi Driver” became an instant classic. As the cast reunited at the Tribeca Film Festival, Matt Lauer sat down with director Martin Scorsese and stars Robert De Niro, Jodie Foster, Harvey Keitel and Cybill Shepherd. Asked for a quick pitch of the film, Scorsese replies with a single word: “Loneliness.” He also reveals that “You talkin’ to me?” was an improvised line. “It was like a jazz riff,” Scorsese said.
