This scene 😞 whenever I watch this, I always get emotional. The quote, “I’m God’s lonely man”, really shows in this scene. The loneliness and sadness shows on Travis’ face and it’s really heartbreaking. Travis is the most authentic character Robert De Niro has ever played because everyone can relate to him on some level. I also think the empty pair of shoes on the dance floor represent Travis perfectly and how he feels. He’s an empty soul and he has no one but himself. He sees the world around him and how evil it is so he eventually takes matters into his own hands. The music compliments this entire scene and it’ll always be one of my favorites. 💛

From @the_asc | LIMITLESS. We had already been shooting a few weeks before Robert de Niro came in for his scheduled days. We had to shoot a wardrobe test with him while we were shooting another scene with Bradley Cooper.
We had set up a little area upstairs from the location where we were. B camera was going to shoot the test. I sent gaffer Jay Fortune up to make sure everything would go ok. I was still to meet him. As we were shooting, the first AD came up to me and said: hey, Bob wants you to come upstairs to check the lighting. I looked over at Neil and said... "Neil you have to come with me, I can't go up there on my own" I can come up with a 100 reasons why that moment was slightly intimidating; one of them was that he's probably the greatest actor of the generation of movies I grew up with. I didn't want his wardrobe test to go wrong ! We shook hands and I told him my name was Yo. He took a moment, held my hand, looked me in the eye, smiled and said: "Yo,...like Yoyo". And I said, yep that's it. "Where are you from Yo ?" "I am from Belgium. A pretty common name there." He was a real gent. It was amazing the respect and adoration he got from every single member on the crew in New York. It was great to see him work. Thanks for reading. Jo Willems @jowillems_asc_sbc.

Essentially just a kid playacting as Travis in his mirror, but so convincing with his raw charisma. - this made me learn french - ㅡ "You talkin' to me" was completely improvised by De Niro, the script didn't give out the exact dialogue, but rather was something like : 'the character talks to his reflection'.

Toute ma vie j’ai été suivi par la solitude. Partout. Dans les bars, les voitures, sur les trottoirs, dans les magasins... partout. Y’a pas d’issue... j’suis abandonné de Dieu. #TaxiDriver#RépliqueTaxiDriver#DeNiro 🔫
