"This Is a Dirty Movie": Taxi Driver and "Swedish Sin"
Lund University.ORCID-id: 0000-0001-9247-5510
2011 (engelsk)Inngår i: Journal of Scandinavian Cinema, ISSN 2042-7891, E-ISSN 2042-7905, Vol. 1, nr 2, s. 163-176Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert) Published
Abstract [en]

This article examines a well-known sequence in Martin Scorsese’s 1976 film Taxi Driver in which the main character Travis Bickle takes his date Betsy to the movies and convinces her to see a Swedish sex education film. The article analyses the representation of Swedish cinema and Swedish sexuality in Taxi Driver, but also discusses the short sequence from a Swedish perspective, revealing a contemporary popular Swedish misconception about it. For this purpose, the sequence as well as the subsequent Swedish interpretation of it are contextualized and considered in relation to the widespread notion of ‘Swedish sin’.
