Pistol said, “I want to thank XBIZ, Pleasure Dynasty, Exile Distribution, General Stone, and Tom Byron for believing in me. This was the role of a lifetime.”

The XBIZ trophy, coupled with eight nominations for the upcoming 2012 AVN Awards, is providing increased demand for “Taxi Driver XXX.”

Pleasure Dynasty owner Carlos Cavero remarked, “Much like the Oscars, anyone who unfortunately missed ‘Taxi Driver XXX’ upon its release is hearing all about the movie now. Tommy’s performance is the best you will ever see, and we are extremely proud of him.”

Exile Distribution’s Howard Levine added, “Phones are already ringing with retailers needing to get ahold of ‘Taxi Driver XXX.’ Word spread quickly about Tommy’s XBIZ win, and consumers want to see what all the buzz is about. Tommy and ‘Taxi Driver XXX’ are going to blow their mind!”

"Taxi Driver XXX" stars Tommy Pistol as Travis Bickle, a man beginning to disconnect from society and on the verge of a breakdown. Unable to sleep at night, Bickle takes a job driving a cab through the dark streets of New York, receiving an education in sin. A high-profile cast supports Pistol, including Jessie Andrews (Iris), Lily LaBeau (Betsy), Evan Stone (Sport), Misty Stone, Nikki Charm, Sean Michaels and 6-time Best New Starlet recipient Chanel Preston.

XBIZ bestowed the coveted title of Editor's Choice on “Taxi Driver XXX.” Contributor Scott Ross wrote, “A fitting tribute to the original. Tommy Pistol does a great job of portraying Travis Bickle, the titular taxi driver who desperately seeks companionship in a world where he doesn’t quite fit in…The videography is excellent and even includes some nice camera angles during the sex scenes. Overall, General Stone admirably works within his limitations to create a dramatic parody that uses the mainstream classic’s sexuality to insert sex scenes in a way that doesn’t interrupt the flow of the movie.”

Pleasure Dynasty created “Taxi Driver XXX” in collaboration with Sensuous Diamond. The property of one of Pleasure Dynasty/PD Films, LLC’s investors, Sensuous Diamond was developed through PD Films’ unique business model. PD Films provides every aspect of what investors need to start their own adult entertainment business.
