Paul Schrader made his directorial debut with this intense drama and social commentary focusing on the frustrations and fears of auto workers in Detroit. It remains one of his best films. Richard Pryor, Harvey Keitel and Yaphet Kotto star as three friends who try to stick it to their corrupt union but only wind up corrupting themselves. Jack Nitzsche provides a memorable blues score that emphasizes the industrial rituals that define these characters. "Schrader's cold, deliberate camera style plays a subtle counterpoint to the story of breakdown and despair. An intelligent, controlled, and well-observed film" (Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader). Paul Schrader---USA---1978---114 mins.
