The three greatest cab movies are :
1976 –Starring Robert De Niro and directed by Martin Scorcese.
The premier taxi movie, with the high art of Martin Scorcese and Robert De Niro
I really love the scene where De Niro talks to the mirror as says “are you talking to me” while he readies himself for battle with Mafia pimps.
2004- Film by directed by Michael Mann,starring Tom Cruise, Jamie Foxx and Jada Pinkett
Jamie Foxx is a cab driver forced to drive hitman Tom Cruise around the city while Tom Cruise kills people.
Has similar to feel to movie Man Hunter (Directed by Michael Mann) , and another movie To Live and Die in LA (Directed by William Friedkin)
NIGHT ON EARTH
1991- Directed by Jim Jarmusch.
The movie revolves around 5 cab rides that take place on night on earth in the five different cities of Los Angeles, New York, Paris, Rome, and Helsinki
This movie stars
Winona Ryder, Roberto Benigni, Giancarlo Esposito
Another Jarmusch movie which I really liked but not about cab rides was Stranger than Paradise(1984)
