Trivia Several nods to Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver (1976), including showing cab drivers hanging outside of the Belmore Cafeteria at night, and the casting of Leonard Harris, who played Senator Charles Palantine in Taxi Driver (1976), playing the Mayor. In one scene, while the mayor is giving a speech, he has both arms raised in the same fashion as Taxi Driver. Also, the street drummer who pays homage to "Gene Krupa" appears in the beginning of this film. See more »
