The actor’s breakout performance came in Martin Scorsese’s “Taxi Driver,” a 1976 drama co-starring Jodie Foster and boasting an impressive overall cast. The emotional, engaging and intriguing film charts the harrowing journey through loneliness, frustration and attempts at normalcy for Travis Bickle. This description hardly does the film justice, but fans of the film’s lead actor attest to his acting prowess.
Another of Robert De Niro’s collaborations with famed director Martin Scorsese, 1980’s “Raging Bull” is an outstanding, in-depth and entertaining biographical drama centered on Jake LaMotta. The man was a legendary boxer, stand-up comedian, business owner, public speaker and author among many other things! Many consider this work to be De Niro’s best to date. “Raging Bull” is an excellent, one-of-a-kind film that all the actor’s fans should watch.
The King of Comedy

Goodfellas and Casino
These two films might be this star’s best works. Both Martin Scorsese collaborations once again, these films are based on real-life events. “Goodfellas” follows the rise and fall of Henry Hill, a mobster for several decades during the latter half of the 20th century, as well as his experiences and stories. “Casino” highlights the mob’s takeover, control and ultimate loss of Las Vegas casinos. “Goodfellas” and “Casino” are iconic in De Niro’s career.
