but in truth it is something all of it’s own, ’cause it’s a mixture of all those things, with a hint of whimsy and a distinct caribbean-ness thrown in as well …

in jamaica the taxi association is called Juta, they of course don’t drive yellow cabs, but i couldn’t do the taxi driver mash-up without one.

not a martin scorcese film!
