Watch Michel Gondry’s Delightful Remake of ‘Taxi Driver’


We thought it was strange when rumors circulated last year that Lars von Trier and Martin Scorsese were planning to team up for a remake of Taxi Driver. You know what’s even more bizarre? Michel Gondry’s new two-minute version of the movie, which he created for the French premiere of Hugo. As fans of Be Kind Rewind might expect, Gondry’s “sweded” remake is decidedly more arts and crafty than the original; colored pencils stand in for bullets, and when Travis Bickle (who’s played by the French auteur) delivers his famous “You talkin’ to me?” lines, the dramatic scene is suddenly transformed into something that’s wacky and adorable. Click through to check out the charming short now.
